-How To View Saved Wifi Passwords In Android

Using File Managers:
First of all, you need a file explorer that gives you the read access to the root folder. If your default File manager doesn’t give you the read 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
1️⃣ Go to data/misc/wifi folder, and you will find a file named wpa_supplicant.conf.
2️⃣ Open the file and make sure to open the file in 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 note down the network name and its password. In this way, you will be able to view all saved WiFi password on the Android device.
❗Note: Please do not edit anything in wpa_supplicant.conf as it can alter your device working or it will have the effect on your WiFi connectivity.
???? ES File Explorer:
