Can I look up my WiFi password?

Answered by Phillip Nicastro

Absolutely! If you’re looking to find your WiFi password, you can easily do so on your Android device running Android 10 or newer. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you out:

1. Firstly, go to the “Settings” menu on your phone. You can access this by swiping down from the top of your screen and tapping the gear icon, or by finding the “Settings” app in your app drawer.

2. Within the “Settings” menu, scroll down and locate the “Wi-Fi” option. Tap on it to access your WiFi settings.

3. In the WiFi settings, you will see a list of available networks. Scroll down to find and select your home network from the list. It should be the network you are currently connected to.

4. Once you’ve selected your home network, a window will open with more details about the network. Here, you’ll find an option called “Share” or “Share password”. Tap on this option.

5. Depending on your device, you may be prompted to authenticate yourself using your phone’s security method, such as a PIN, pattern, or biometric authentication (fingerprint or face unlock). This is to ensure that only authorized users can access the password.

6. After successfully authenticating, a pop-up will appear with the WiFi password for your network. You can choose to copy the password to your clipboard or share it with another device or person.

It’s important to note that this method works specifically for devices running Android 10 or newer. If you’re using an older version of Android, the steps may vary slightly. In such cases, you may need to explore other options like accessing your WiFi router’s settings or using third-party apps.

If you have an Android device running Android 10 or newer, you can easily look up your WiFi password by navigating to the WiFi settings in the “Settings” menu, selecting your home network, and choosing the “Share” or “Share password” option. This feature can come in handy when you need to connect other devices to your network or share the password with someone else.
