Default Wifi passwords

While using the Wi-Fi password backup app I noticed that all of the passwords were alphanumeric strings, as opposed to just the passwords. I also checked the passwords in root explorer and they were AN strings too. Why? I'm rooted on stock so I don't see the problem.

You mean the stored passwords are different alphanumeric strings than the ones you saved?

I don't use wifi backups but I'm curious, do you? Because my passwords don't save in wpa_supplicant.conf.

Ah ok. I don't use Google backup. Was wondering if saved wifi passwords were supposed to be stored there. Thanks.
