    Hi Angela,

    Some wireless router have default network security set up out of the box. If this is the case, we suggest that you contact your internet provider or router manufacturer for further assistance.

    If you, or any family member were the ones who set up the security key, you can check out
    this link from our support website for steps on how to
    find your password on a Windows PC.

    Let us know if you need anything else.

    Security Key

    Some tentative suggestions -
    1 Perhaps you mean the 'Security key' for a WiFi network?
    2 Perhaps you mean the 'Security key' for your router's Admin functions that is controlling your WiFi network?
    3 Perhaps you mean your Windows user account login 'password' or a 'PIN' that you have set it up to accept instead?
