How to View Connected WiFi Password on Android


It’s relatively easy to see WiFi network passwords on Android. Before Android 10, the only way to view the passwords of all saved WiFi networks was to install WiFi password viewer applications, but with Android 10, you have a native option to check the passwords.

If your smartphone runs on Android 10 or above, you don’t need to install any third-party app or view the hidden files to check the passwords of the WiFi network you’re currently connected to.
