Your Android phone saves the password when you connect it to a Wi-Fi network. Later, you can find and use your saved passwords to connect other devices to your network. We’ll show you how to make Android reveal those network passwords.
To perform the task, you do not have to root your phone or use a third-party app. Just tap an option in your phone’s Settings app and you’ll see the password for each saved network. Please note that you will need to authorize with your fingerprint or PIN to reveal the saved passwords.
Note: The steps below will work for some Android devices, including Google Pixel phones. However, Samsung does not provide a built-in method to do this. You can try third party apps like “WiFiList”. We have briefly tested this solution, but downloading is at your own risk.

View saved Wi-Fi passwords on Android
To start revealing your saved passwords, launch Settings on your Android phone. Please note that the steps below will vary slightly depending on the phone model you have.
In Settings, select “Wi-Fi & Network”.
On the “Wi-Fi & Network” page, select “Wi-Fi”.
Tap “Saved Networks” to see your saved wireless networks.
In the list of networks, find and tap your Wi-Fi network. Then on the next page choose “Share”.
Authenticate using your fingerprint or PIN. Then you will see a QR code on your screen.
Just below the QR code, next to “Wi-Fi password”, you will find the password for the selected network.
You can now use this password to connect your other devices to your wireless network. Another way to do this is to scan the QR code with your other device and it will connect to your network.
In addition to Android, you can view saved Wi-Fi passwords on your Windows 11, Windows 10, Mac, and other devices.
