How to find Wifi Password on Android

Technology     10 October 2018     0 Comments

Today, we are going to tell you how to see wifi password on android. Obviously, it will expect your android phone to be rooted. It is very simple process and is just going to take 15 seconds of your time. The original credit for first method for this share goes to rezo609, a senior member from xda community. Some other users have shared few other methods also to see the credentials.

Some techies are claiming that you can get your network credentials without rooting your phone. What I can tell is that in order to get into it, you have to access wpa_supplicant.conf. And I don’t think it can be accessed without rooting. So beware of all those false claims on net. But then also, if you find any working trick without root then please let us know too.

Anyways, We are going to list here few ways to achieve this.

First Method- Using Root File Manager

1. First of all, you must have Root file manager on your device to be installed. So, just install it.

2. Got to the directory : /data/misc/wifi/

3. Open : wpa_supplicant.conf

4. You can see all your wifi passwords stored here. So, just check them here.

For an alternate to Root File Manager, you can also use Root Browser Lite.

Second Method – Using command

1. Open the terminal.

2. Type below commands:

cat /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf

Third Method – Using another command

This third method will allow you to export the result in a text file, on your sd card.
1. Open the emulator terminal.

2. Type the commands as shown below:

cat /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf | egrep ‘(ssid|psk)’ > /mnt/sdcard/wifibackup.txt

Fourth Method – Using Google playstore apps

If you are not willing to use any of the above methods then there is an android app too that does this job for you. Download Wifi Password and install it on your phone. You can then see your wifi passwords.

Wifi Password ShowPro app

Please note that both these apps also require your mobile to be rooted.
