Android - How to see saved wifi password

In Android, to see the saved password of all the wifi networks:

1. Install a root browser such as ROM Toolbox Lite' s root browser (you may need to root your phone to be able to use this tool)


2. Using root browser navigate to /data/misc/wifi/. You will see a file name wpa_supplicant.conf. All the wifi networks's information are stored in this file.


3. Open that file with a text editor in your phone. And you will see something like:

network={
    ssis="MyWifiNetwork"
    psk="MyWifiP@ssword"
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    sim_slot="-1"
    imsi="none"
    pcsc="none"
    priority=6
}

The value "MyWifiP@ssword" of "psk" key is the password you need, in plain text.
