Hey guys,

I am coming from an HTC One (M7). I just got a z2, i logged in with my google account and everything has been transferred over BUT my wifi saved networks and related passwords. I had been told that google saves them, as well and transfers them over upon log in... it did not happen, though.

Any kind suggestion, please?

Thanks in advance

This didnt happen because i doubt that the programme that was used to transfer this information does not know how HTC stores info and how Sony stores info, although literely like aosp but one tiny difference

If you can, root both devices and dig around in your /data/ in your root, you may find stored passwords in a XML file of sorts

I dont usualy look for this so i cant tell you exactly where, just a general idea

Yeah, I was told that google stores those information and they should be transferred during a restore straight to a new device when logging in.... it just did not happen to me.
