Hack WIFI Password with Android Phone ? See Saved Wifi Passwords

 

See the passwords for Wi-Fi networks that you have connected to your Android device

While managing your Android device, you may have connected to multiple Wi-Fi networks. School, home, work, gym, homes for your friends and family, coffee shops - every time you type in one of these Wi-Fi numbers, your Android device is stored securely and easily accessible in the future.

The problem comes when you really want to see the password for the other networks you are connected to. Maybe you want to connect a second device to a secure Wi-Fi hotspot, or maybe you're with a friend who wants to access the same hotspot. But without access to the actual passwords stored by your device, you're out of luck.

Thankfully, there are ways around this. If you're on Android 10 or higher, you can see Wi-Fi passwords directly from your phone's settings. However, if you are on Android 9.0 Pie or less, be aware that you will need to have root.

Method 1: Android 10 & Up

This first method does not require root or additional application. But it requires your phone to run Android 10 or higher. When your phone is updated with this version, I'll set up a quick and easy way to see the Wi-Fi passwords stored below. If not, you can jump to Method 2.

Step 1: Go To Wi-Fi settings

Currently, there is only one version of Android 10, and that version of "Stock Android" is directly from Google. Soon, however, manufacturers such as Samsung will incorporate their own spin into Android 10 using an OEM skin similar to the One UI, which means the settings menu may vary slightly on your phone.

So first search your phone's settings menu with the "Wi-Fi" menu below. In Stock Android, available in Settings -> Network and Internet. Once you have found the Wi-Fi settings menu, go ahead and select.



Step 2: View Wi-Fi passwords

Inside the Wi-Fi settings page, scroll through the list of available networks and select the "Saved Networks" option. From there, you'll see a list of all the Wi-Fi networks your phone remembers. Choose one.



Now, select the "Share" option at the top of the screen. You will be asked to scan your fingerprint or face or enter your PIN or password. When you do, you will see a QR code that contains the SSID and network password. You can scan this with another device using a QR scanner if you want, but the password is also written in plain text under the QR code, so you can copy it there.



Method 2: Android 9 and Lower (Root Required)

If your phone is running Android 9.0 Pie or less, the only way to view stored Wi-Fi passwords is by root application. This will work best if you have installed TWRP and used that to install the root Magisk.

Step 1: Install WiFi Password Viewer

There are many apps that claim to be able to display your Wi-Fi passwords in the Google Play Store, but the only one we found to work on all our devices was WiFi Password Viewer by SimoneDev.



Step 2: View Saved Wi-Fi Passwords

When you first launch WiFi Password Viewer, the app will request Superuser access. Tap "Provide" in the popup, you will be moved to a list containing all the Wi-Fi networks you have connected to, where each entry shows the password under it.



If you are connected to multiple Wi-Fi networks while owning your Android device, your list could be quite long. If so, you can search for a specific Wi-Fi network using the search button in the top right corner.

Step 3: Share Saved Wi-Fi Passwords

If you need to share these passwords with another device, you have a few options. Start by tapping any entry in the list, and then a sub-menu. From here, you can tap "Copy Password" to copy that network password to your clipboard, which can make it easier to attach to your messaging app and transfer it to another device. Or, you can skip the action and tap "Share," and select your text messaging application from the menu that appears to send the password.



Finally, you can also tap "QR" to enable the app to generate a QR code containing network details. If the other device is a Pixel or iPhone, you can simply open the camera app, point it to the QR code, and tap the popup information to automatically connect it to a Wi-Fi network.
