How to View a Saved WiFi Password on Android Without Root




Viewing saved WiFi passwords on Android without root access is not directly supported by the operating system. Android's security and privacy measures prevent apps from accessing sensitive information like saved WiFi passwords without root privileges.

However, if your device is running Android 10 or later, there is a way to view saved WiFi networks, but you won't be able to see the passwords directly. Instead, you can access a QR code containing the network details and share it with another device to connect to the same network. Here's how you can do it:

1. Open the "Settings" app on your Android device.

2. Go to "Wi-Fi" or "Network & Internet," depending on your device's manufacturer and Android version.

3. Find and tap on the "Wi-Fi preferences" or "Saved networks" option.

4. You should see a list of all the saved WiFi networks on your device. Select the network for which you want to retrieve the password.

5. Tap on the "Share" icon (usually represented by three vertical dots) or the QR code icon.

6. Choose your preferred method to share the network information. You can select "Generate QR code" or "Share network as QR code."

7. Once the QR code is generated, you can share it with another device, and it will allow that device to connect to the same network without revealing the actual password.

Please note that this method doesn't give you access to the actual password. If you genuinely need to retrieve the WiFi password itself without rooting your Android device, your best option is to ask the network administrator or check the password on the router's settings page if you have access to it.

Keep in mind that the Android operating system is continuously evolving, and new methods or features might become available in future updates. Therefore, it's a good idea to check for the latest information or third-party apps that might provide this functionality without requiring root access. Always be cautious when using third-party apps and ensure that they come from trusted sources to avoid potential security risks.
