Where Is My WiFi Code? 

WiFi Code, also known as the WiFi password, is a password code for connecting your device via the wireless network. It is sometimes also called WiFi security key, WEP key, or WPA/WPA2 Passphrase. 

The default WiFi code is normally the default password on your WiFi router. It's printed on a sticker that contains both the SSID - Wireless network name and the password. If you didn't change the default password, you can view and find the code on the sticker and connect your Windows, Mac computers, or mobile phones to the wireless network.
