I cannot help you with getting root. Have a look at http://forum.xda-developers.com for that.

Have you ever forgotten the password of your home WiFi network, or the one you setup for your parents a few months back?

This application will help you recover the password of a wireless network you have connected to with your device in the past.

You can then either tap on an entry to copy it, or export the list to SD, or share it using the standard Android sharing facilities.

It does not crack the network, or use the MAC/SSID address to deduce the password. It simply reads it from the device itself.

Essentially it parses the wpa_supplicant file.

For more information on how the keys are recovered read here: http://alt236.blogspot.com/2011/04/android-wifi-password-locations.html

User's Reivew

1 ★ Changed my phone and can't seem to be able to import all the saved networks from export. Is that correct? If indeed there is no import function somehow then this app is severely limited. This review will change if there actually exists some kind of import function and I just can't find it.by Jo Veteran on November 13, 2013
5 ★ Work great now on my Galaxy S5! For those who are experiencing random numbers(hash) as password follow this guide to fix it. Open your build.prop and change the line ro.securestorage.support=true to false and restart your phone. Enjoy! Please vote this comment up to show for everyone 👍by Abbas Maghazehi on August 07, 2015
5 ★ I'd happily pay a buck for a donate version and two bucks if there was an import function so I could do something with the XML files this app exports. Keying them in by hand gets the job done but it's tedious. At least I have them, which is a huge plus with a new phone or tablet.by Steven Walker on October 02, 2014
2 ★ As mentioned by others, it does not work on the S4, S4 was still ok, and my Galaxy Tab 7.7 shows the correct passwords, too. By the way, it shows a wrong/cryptic device name on the S5 (kltexx klte). The timestamp seems to be correct.by Fritz Pinguin on April 21, 2015
5 ★ I wish people knew how to read a description. - It can only retrieve data on stored Wi-Fi information. - You need ROOT-ACCESS to use this app. - It cannot hack into unknown networks. It does exactly what it says if you have the prerequisites and you don't expect more than what is offered. Great job, Dev! If you're still around maybe we can get an Android 4.0+ Holo UI update?by A Google User on May 06, 2013
5 ★ This has saved me so many times any time I've forgotten a wifi password after autosaving it for months. I've even been able to pull passwords that friends have forgotten. This app is the best.by Anonymous on March 24, 2014
1 ★ I used this app for a long time and loved it but now it no longer works. It has not been updated in a long time and appears to be no longer supported. An e-mail to the developer was never responded to. Make it work again and it gets 5 stars.by robert meier on February 22, 2014
5 ★ Thanks for this great app, works just fine for me! It's just sad to see so many morrons around downvote your app just because they are too stupid to read the description concerning root access & that your tool is made to recover formally KNOWN passwords and not to crack foreign wifi-networks. Keep up the good work!by A Google User on September 16, 2012
5 ★ Great to view saved passwords easily. Root only as stated in the description, it cannot read the required files unless your device is rooted! Export feature is brilliant to export saved data to SD, dropbox or wherever. Only 141kb and stable so no annoying update notifications.by M Baker on June 23, 2014
5 ★ When my untie doesn't want to tell me there WiFi password, and she typed it on my smart phone...then I search for an app to reveal the written password and then I found this app and it really works..! Keep up the good work guys...by Gian Carlo Canceran on May 21, 2016

Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like ApkClean.com goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why ApkClean.com can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from ApkClean.com, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.
