How to see Wi-Fi Password of Networks your Android Device is connected

The developer Alexandros Schillings decided to remedy this issue with an app that allows you to view every Wi-Fi password that you have ever saved on your Android device.

The app requires root access, but beyond that, it makes finding and sharing your stored Wi-Fi passwords incredibly easy.

Step 1: Install WiFi Key Recovery

Schillings app is called WiFi Key Recovery, and it is available on the Google Play Store for free.

Search the app by name to get it installed on your rooted device, or head directly to the install page below.

Google Play
  • You need root to use this application.
  • You need to have connected to the network in the past.
  • This app cannot “hack” into an unknown/new network.

Step 2: Viewing Saved Wi-Fi Passwords

When you first launch WiFi Key Recovery, the app will ask for Superuser access.

Tap “Grant” on the popup, then you will be taken to a list containing all of the Wi-Fi networks that you have ever connected to, where each entry shows a password in the “psk” field.

Note: If you have connected to many different Wi-Fi networks you can simply search by the “Quick search”-filed

Step 3: Sharing Wi-Fi Passwords

If you need to share one of these passwords with another device, you have a few options.

Start by tapping any entry in the list, then a small menu will pop up.

This allows you to use Android’s built-in sharing system to send either just the password or the entire entry. There is also an option for sharing via QR code, but that requires that you install an additional app.

Google Play

Scan barcodes on products, or Data Matrix and QR Codes containing URLs, contact info, etc.

Note that this app can no longer be updated on Google Play…

From here, you can use Androids share menu to send this file to another device, or you can simply tap “To SD” if you had rather save a copy of this text file to your device’s storage partition. And of course, if your list isn’t too long, you can always take (and share) a screenshot.

That’s how we can see passwords of saved wifi networks.
