    welp……..this is b****** bcoz your method is only for rooted devices bruh

    • Admin says:

      I have already mentioned the Disclaimer in the article as below.

      IMPORTANT: I have got complains from some people stating the data folder in their android phones is empty. It is due to their firmware privacy. Thus, they cannot Recover/View Saved WiFi Password in their android phones without rooting.

      So, read the article carefully before having any judgement bruh.

        You still need to root your phone. The Recover/View Saved WiFi Password app says so bruh

        The 2nd heading right below the main title and after some bullshit ads CLEARLY states WITHOUT root BRUUUH

        • Admin says:

          Hi Dee,

          Yeah, it is possible to view saved password without root. But it works in some older phones only. I would advise you to read the whole article rather than coming into conclusion by just seeing the heading. Thanks.

    • Admin says:

      Hi Subhash,
      Do you mark a check on remember this network option while entering the WiFi Password? If not, then do this. Your Password will not get deleted.
      But if you still want to see the WiFi Password, then let me inform you that you cannot view Wifi through your non-rooted Moto E android phone. It does not have that feature. Well, you can take a rooted android phone, install WiFi Pass Recovery and Backup app secretly in it and ask your manager to enter the password in it. It will do the rest of the job.
      Hope it helps! 🙂

  15. vic says:

    I am on Android 5.1.1 on a Note 10.1. My password is not shown. Only this long string:


    What to do?

    • Admin says:

      Do you see the ssid option above psk option. Does that match with the WiFi connection’s ssid?

      • vic says:

        Yes it does. Its just the password thats not shown correctly.


        • Admin says:

          I guess either the password is encrypted using 32 character string or this is the password which has been selected via a password generator (32 characters long). So, do check if this is the password or not. If not, then you have to decrypt this string.

          You can also Google about 32 character string or hashcode for more information.

          Hope! it helps. 🙂

    Mine. Password is just like a big code can anybody help me to solve this problem
    After lot of seacrches i had found that the password is encrypted by hashcode 32 charactor string
    can anybody help me to decode this string

    Plz sent me googled link along with reply

    • Admin says:

      The password you are seeing is a 32-bit or 64-bit hash code which is encrypted in the form of strings. You need some programming knowledge to decrypt it. Other than that, you cannot do anything. You will find many websites claiming to decrypt it for you but they are useless and scam. So, don’t fall for them.

    i found wpa.supplicant not in data but system bin but there is very long page and written in very unknown language and i get tired scrolling page but i cant find wifi name and password as it should be clearly seen !! data folder is empty am i looking wrong file???

  31. Cyanna says:

    Basically this method doesn’t work. Either due to firmware encryption which then requires rooting the device or because the password is stored encrypted.

    • Admin says:

      I guess you have not read the article properly. It has been clearly mentioned that if you can’t see data folder on your android phone, then you have to root your android phone to view WiFi password.
