of WiFi router tends to lock their WiFi network connection with a strong

Android or an iOS device to your WiFi network but couldn’t recall the WiFi
passwords, or you need to share the WiFi passwords but don’t know how to access
it in your mobile smart device.

How to find Forgotten WiFi passwords in
Android Phones
Getting to

difficult, as you need to access a folder saved in its root directory, which doesn’t
allow or give access to users. But in this case, you need to get elevated to
administrator privileges in other to be able to access the folder for the wifi
passwords. Below is how to go about that on your android devices.

First of all,
you need to get your android rooted so as to access such folder with root
directory. Ones your phone is rooted, you will be able to access and see the
saved Wi-Fi passwords for free.


Now, it is
assumed that your Android device is rooted. And to locate the wifi password
inside your mobile phone, you need to use either a file manager, for example: Solid Explorer to manually search for the WiFi passwords, or you can go by using
a powerful dedicated app to have all the passwords extracted automatically. So
in other words, I recommend you to use a third-party app because it is more
intuitive and easier to use for managing and sharing your Wi-Fi passwords.

To cut the long
story short, I recommend you use Wifi Password Show app. The app is free to use. All you need to do, is to download
and install it on your rooted android device. After that, launch the app, and
you will get to see the list of all saved WiFi passwords along with their SSID. Now copy the listed data and get
your Android device connected to Wifi network. You can even share the listed
data either by SMS or via Email messaging, the choice is yours.

another, then you are not required to root your device. This is because, Google

important data(s).

assured that your passwords are backed up by Google if you enabled backup on
your Android settings. Now log in to your Google
account
using another Android device, and after that, all your WiFi
networks information will automatically get synced in that new Android phone

apps
