How to see your Wi-Fi password on Android

How to find your Wi-Fi password on an Android device: Android 10 and above

Android 10 and above have made it easy to view your Wi-Fi password without the need for any third-party apps. Here’s how to do it:

Step 1: Open your phone’s settings by tapping on the gear icon.

Step 2: Scroll down and select “Network & Internet”.

Step 3: Tap on “Wi-Fi” under the “Wireless & networks” section.

Step 4: Find the network name (SSID) of the Wi-Fi you want to retrieve the password for and tap on it.

Step 5: A pop-up window will appear with information about that network, including its IP address, gateway, MAC address, etc. Tap on “Share” or “QR code” depending on what option is available.

Step 6: If you selected “Share”, a new screen will appear where you can share all details of this connection via a QR code or text message.

That’s it! You now know how to find your Wi-Fi password using Android devices running version 10 or higher quickly and easily with just a few steps in mind.

How to find your Wi-Fi password on an Android device: Android 9 and below

If you have an Android device running on version 9 or below, finding your Wi-Fi password can be a bit trickier compared to newer versions. But don’t worry, it is still possible!

The first method you can try is using the ES File Explorer app which allows you to access system files. Once downloaded, open the app and navigate to the root directory “data/misc/wifi”. Here, look for a file named “wpa_supplicant.conf” and tap on it to open. You should see details of all saved Wi-Fi networks including their passwords.

If that method doesn’t work for you, try using ADB commands through your computer. First, enable USB debugging in your phone’s developer options and connect it to your computer with a USB cable. Open Command Prompt (Windows) or Terminal (Mac/Linux) and type “adb shell” followed by “su”. Then enter “cat /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf” which should display all saved Wi-Fi networks information along with their passwords.

Remember that accessing system files comes with some risks so proceed with caution!
