Did you know you can see the saved Wi-Fi password on your Android phone right within the Settings? This quick guide will show you how to view saved Wi-Fi password on your Android phone without root.
A password manager is a convenient way to save all your passwords, but there’s an even easier and quicker way to find your WiFi password on your Android phone?
Although there are many benefits of rooting an Android phone, Android 10, and higher now lets your phone enjoy some of these benefits. It makes it easy to find passwords to Wi-Fi networks you have previously connected to in your Android phone’s settings.
Note: It’s only possible to discover the password for Wi-Fi networks to which you have previously connected using a password.

Find Wi-Fi Passwords in Android Settings
This is slightly different on different Android phones, but the following instructions should apply to most. We’ll use a Google Pixel phone with Android 11 for this example.
- Open the Settings app, then select “Network and internet”.
- Select Wi-Fi.
- Scroll down and look for “Saved networks” at the bottom of the page and select it.
- Select the network you want to find the password for.
- Select “Share” at the top of the screen.
- When prompted enter your PIN or password for your smartphone, or scan your fingerprint or face.
A QR code will appear on the screen with the Wi-Fi network’s password written underneath.
There you have it. You can type the password in or use the QR scanner to access the Wi-Fi network with another device.
