If you ever connected a WiFi network on your smartphone (ANDROID 10) and you forget the password or want to share it with your friends and family but can’t recall it, don’t worry, the solution is here!
Android 10 & Up (No Root)
If you are running Android 10 or higher, then you can see Wi-Fi passwords straight from the network settings of your phone.
Right now, there’s only one flavor of Android 10 and that’s Google’s “Stock Android” version. But there is a possibility that companies like Samsung etc can come with their own spin to it.
Step 1: Locate Wi-Fi Settings
Follow the pattern given below.
As far as your devices are connected to any sort of wi-fi network, this process is helpful to you.
Go to SETTING > NETWORK & INTERNET > WI-FI
Step 2: View Password
– When you open the WI-FI there will be a list of wi-fi networks, your phone is connected to. Click on the saved network and then click the name of the network you want to see the password.
– Select the option “Share” towards the top of the screen.
– You will be requested to scan your face or fingerprint or enter your password or PIN. In doing so, you will see a QR code representing the SSID and password of the network.
Android 9 & Lower (Rooted)
If you run Android 9.0 Pie or less, you can view stored Wi-Fi passwords is through a root command. If you have TWRP enabled and used that to use Magisk for core, this will work best.
Step 1: Install WiFi Password Viewer
There are plenty of apps on the Appstore in which some are working apps but some are lame enough to waste your time and energy.
The one we recommend is:
NOTE: If you have any working app or know any authentic app you can use it as well.
Step 2: View Saved Wi-Fi Passwords
When you open the app for the first time it will request Superuser access. Tap “Grant” on the popup, then you’ll be drawn to a list of all the Wi-Fi networks you’ve ever connected to, where each entry displays a password below it. Select the one you want to see the password of.
Eventually, you can also tap “QR” to allow the device to produce a QR code that contains network data. If the other user is a Pixel or iPhone, you will simply open the camera app, point it to the QR code and then press the popup button to attach it to the Wi-Fi network automatically.
