Do you have many wifi networks that you have connected to, and you have forgotten their passwords, and you want to share the wifi password with your friends or with your neighbor, I think that the solutions that I will provide for you in this article will help you a lot.

For Android devices, it does not offer any option to show the hidden passwords of the WiFi networks that you are connected to, so you will need to do some research in order to be able to show the hidden WiFi network in your device.

In the two methods that I will explain, you do not need to install root on your device, only with some free applications that we will download, we will be able to access the password of the wifi network connected to your device.

Show wifi key via QR Scanner Application (Android v10 or up)


For the first method to find network security key wifi we will use the QR Scanner app, which is an Android app for scanning QR codes, which will enable us to scan the QR wifi of the network connected with our device.

Before the wifi passphrase extraction process, make sure that your Android device is version 10 or higher, because this version supports qr code to connect to wifi, meaning that a version less than 10 will not work with this method.

If your device is less than the Android 10 version, go directly to the second method, although it is a bit complicated, but I am sure that if you follow the explanation as it is, you will be able to extract the wireless password for wifi easily.
