How to Get WiFi Password on Android Phone

Most of us set complex and strong Wi-Fi passwords and tend to forget them after a few weeks. If you want to setup a new device and have forgotten your Wi-Fi password, here’s how to check it.

Step 1:  Tap on the Settings app and head to Network & Internet.

Step 2: Go to WiFi section and connect to your WiFi network whose password you want to know.

Step 3: Tap on the lock or settings icon next to the WiFi name. Here, you will find three options: Forget, Disconnect and Share.

Step 3: Tap on Share option. The phone will ask you to verify yourself by entering phone lock PIN. Enter that and verify.

Step 4: That’s it! You will be shown a QR code or WiFi password or both of them.  You can now scan it or enter on another device to connect WiFi.

Do note that this method only works on devices running Android 10 or later. If you do not have the mentioned version, you might not be able to view the WiFi password.

Don’t worry as we have listed several methods through which you can check the WiFi password on iOS, Windows and macOS devices. See the next slide to know more.
