If you save the wifi password in Windows 10, it is stored in plaintext in memory.
Is there a roombib that can be encrypted and stored in memory?
For example, if you log in to wifi with 'id: b', 'password: Akzmfldzm22!' information, the password appears flat when you open the memory dump in Windows.
I would like to ask if there is a way to solve this problem among the Windows features.

    Hello Thank you for your question and reaching out. Windows saves password file in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Wlansvc\Profiles\Interfaces
    You will find the wireless devices are each represented by its GUID { GUID } and its settings are stored in XML file with a random GUID name. It uses 'Windows Cryptography' functions : https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/seccrypto/cryptography-functions#data_encryption_and_decryption_functions Reference: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/where-are-the-passwords-of-my-wi-fi-networks-saved/5170ec32-92f9-4187-813f-478e7d6dba76 --If the reply is helpful, please Upvote and Accept as answer--
