As a technical blogger, I can provide a professional explanation on how to get the WiFi password from an Android phone. However, before we proceed, it’s important to note that getting the WiFi password from someone else’s phone without their permission is illegal and unethical.
Assuming that you are trying to get the password from your own Android phone, here’s what you need to do:
1. Download and install a file manager app from the Google Play store. There are many free file managers available, such as ES File Explorer, Solid Explorer, or X-Plore File Manager.
2. Open the file manager app and go to the root folder of your Android device. Usually, it’s located in the internal storage directory.
3. Look for a folder named "data" and open it. Then, navigate to another folder called "misc" and open it as well.
4. In the "misc" folder, you will find a sub-folder named "wifi". Open this folder and you will see a file named "wpa_supplicant.conf".
5. Tap and hold on the file to bring up the options menu, then select "Open with" and choose a text editor app.
6. In the text editor app, you will see a list of saved WiFi network names and their corresponding passwords in plain text.
That’s it! You can now view the WiFi password from your Android phone. However, it’s important to remember that this method only works if your phone is already connected to the WiFi network you’re trying to get the password for.

How to get Wi-Fi password from Android using QR code?
To get the Wi-Fi password from an Android phone using a QR code, you will need to have administrative access to the Wi-Fi network. First, you will need to create a QR code for the Wi-Fi network’s SSID and password using a QR code generator tool. Then, you can use any QR code scanner app on your Android phone to scan the code. Once scanned, your phone will automatically connect to the Wi-Fi network and store the password in your saved network settings. You can then view the saved password in your phone’s Wi-Fi settings. However, it is worth noting that accessing a Wi-Fi network without permission is unethical and may be illegal.
Can I see passwords on my Wi-Fi?
No, you cannot see passwords on your Wi-Fi network. Wi-Fi passwords are encrypted and stored securely to prevent unauthorized access to your network. If you have forgotten your Wi-Fi password, you can reset it by accessing your wireless router’s settings page. This process varies depending on the make and model of your router, so it’s recommended to refer to your router’s user manual or contact your internet service provider for assistance. Additionally, it’s important to keep your Wi-Fi network secure by using a strong password that is not easily guessable, disabling guest network access, and regularly updating your router’s firmware.
