How to View Saved WiFi Passwords on Android (Rooted devices)

On an Android device, have you ever joined to a WiFi network but afterwards forgotten the password? We’ve all been there, I suppose. Most of the time, we don’t pay attention to WiFi passwords because we are already connected and assume we won’t ever need them. We were completely mistaken, though. We occasionally require the WiFi password to diagnose network issues, and what if you wish to share the WiFi password with a friend? Some people think it’s a good idea to write down passwords, but why bother when Android makes it simple to access saved WiFi credentials?

Yes, you can do it, but your smartphone needs to be rooted in order to do so. Therefore, there are two ways to view saved WiFi passwords on a rooted Android phone or tablet:

Method 1: Via File Manager

1.You will need a file manager with root explorer functionality for this procedure. So, if you don’t have one, you can pick among the top Android file manager apps. You can use Root Browser since we did.

2. Go to data/misc/wififolder in the file management application. When you open the data folder, a root management tool like SuperSU may ask you to grant the file manager root access. Choose Grant, then go to the folder.

3. You’ll discover a text file named wpa supplicant.conf in the thewifi folder. Use a text editor application to open the file. You shouldn’t have any trouble opening it because text editors are typically included into file manager programmes. The file will contain information about both the WiFi networks you’re now connected to and the networks you’ve previously linked to.

Method 2: Via a third party app

Using a third-party app is another option to view saved WiFi passwords on Android. When you search for WiFi Password Recover in the Play Store, you can find a tonne of apps that offer the functionality. You can install any of them because the majority of them have names that are similar and are functional. We used the free WiFi Password Recovery Pro app, which is excellent and is available everywhere.

Simply launch the app and grant the app superuser permission to read saved WiFi passwords (if you have a root manager app installed). The software will then provide a list of every WiFi network you’ve ever connected to. The network password can then be viewed by just tapping on the network name. The password can also be tapped in order to copy it to the clipboard.
