How To View Saved Wifi Passwords On Android Phones (Confirmed)

It has been almost impossible to view saved Wi-Fi passwords on an Android device. We have however come up with a method with which you can view saved Wi-Fi passwords easily. There are two methods of doing this which are:

  • Using File Managers
  • Using ES File Explorer

Using File Managers: First of all, you need a file explorer that gives you the access to read the root folder. If your default File manager doesn’t give you the access to the root folder, then you can install Root Explorer or Super Manager which will grant superuser permission to you to access the system folder

Step 1: Go to data/misc/wifi folder, and you will find a file named wpa_supplicant.conf.


️Step 2: Open the file and make sure you open the file using built-in text/HTMLviewer for the task. Now in this file, you will be able to see the network SSID and their passwords next to it.


✍️ Now all you need to do is to note down the network name and it's password. Using this method, you will be able to view all saved WiFi passwords on the Android device.
