3.Install wifi password show app from playstore (root required to use the app) or use root file manager app.

Method 1:With App:

Wifi Password Show app will show you saved passwords with one click.

The wifi passwords on Android are stored in a configuration file,the file path is /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf.


From Android Oreo the file path is changed to /data/misc/wifi//WifiConfigStore.xml.


This file is usually own by a system user like wifi or root. So you have to be root if you want to read wifi password directly. without root ,it is not possible to view the wifi password config files.
