You don’t remember the password. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to find the hotspot password on your Android phone.

Method 1: Using the Settings Menu

If you’re running Android 10 or later on your device, follow these steps:

  1. Step 1: Open the Settings app on your Android phone.
  2. Step 2: Scroll down and tap on Network & internet.
  3. Step 3: Tap on Wi-Fi.

  5. Step 5: Tap on Edit network.
  6. Step 6: Scroll down and find the field labeled “Password“. The password will be masked with dots. Tap and hold on it to reveal the actual password.

Method 2: Using Third-Party Apps

If your device is not running Android 10 or later, or if you prefer a more user-friendly method, you can use third-party apps like “WiFi Password Recovery” or “WiFi Map” from the Google Play Store. Here’s how:

  1. Step 1: Open the Google Play Store on your Android phone.
  2. Step 2: Search for “WiFi Password Recovery” or “WiFi Map“.
  3. Step 3: Install the app that suits your needs and open it.
  4. Step 4: Grant the necessary permissions to the app when prompted.
  5. Step 5: The app will automatically scan and retrieve the passwords for all the previously connected Wi-Fi networks on your device, including hotspots.

Tips for Finding Hotspot Passwords

If you still can’t find the password using the above methods, consider trying these additional tips:

  • TIP: Check with the hotspot provider: Some hotspots may display their password in a visible location or provide it upon request.
  • TIP: Look for saved passwords in your browser: If you’ve previously connected to a hotspot using a web-based authentication portal, check your browser’s saved passwords.
  • TIP: Ask someone who has previously connected: If you’re in a public place, politely ask someone who has used the hotspot before if they remember the password.

We hope this tutorial helped you find the hotspot password on your Android phone. Now, you can connect to Wi-Fi hotspots hassle-free without worrying about forgotten passwords. Happy browsing!
