Android smartphones have always been my first choice. Apart from being feature-rich, they are quite easy-to-use. With tons of variety to choose from, you can get exactly what you desire.
As an Android user, there is one feature which I would like to have is the ability to see saved Wi-Fi passwords. There had been several occasions when I needed to see the passwords in order to enable Wi-Fi network on my other devices. As for instance, my smartphone is connected to the Wi-Fi network at my GYM but I want to use the same Wi-Fi network on my tablet which hasn’t yet been connected to it, won’t it be better I could instantly see the passwords on my device? Yes, it will be.
Fortunately, you can access the saved Wi-Fi passwords, if your Android device is rooted. There are several apps that allow you to do so. But I like WiFi Key Recovery. Hence, we are going to use this app in order to access the passwords. Let’s dive ahead!
How to Access and Share Saved Wi-Fi Passwords on Android
Step #1. First off, you need to download Wi-Fi Key Recovery from the Google Play Store. The app is available for free.
Step #2. Once you have successfully downloaded the app, launch it.
Step #3. You will be asked to grant WiFi Key Recovery Superuser access. You have to tap on the “Grant” button on the pop-up window.
Step #4. On the next page, you will see the list of all the Wi-Fi networks you have ever connected to your smartphone.
Step #5. Whereas the SSID indicates the name of the Wi-Fi network, the second line of every connected network (PSK) contains its passwords.
Based on how many networks you have connected to on your device, you will see a long list. In order to find the Wi-Fi network you are looking for, you need to use “SSID Quicksearch”.
Step #6. You have the option to save the passwords to use them later. You need to tap on particular network information. A pop-up menu will appear on the screen.
You will get the three options:
To let you “Copy password”.
To let you “Copy all”– the network information.
To let you “Share” the Wi-Fi network information as a QR code.
Step #7. You will have to tap on the three-dot menu button at the top corner and select “Export” in order to share the saved network information.
Besides, there is an option to save the information as a text file to your SD card. To do so, tap on “To SD”.
That’s all there is to it!
I hope this tutorial has helped you find your saved Wi-Fi passwords easily.
