Solved in my way, try pls & let me know
First we need to confirm it's a problem with secure storage.
Step 1  Install BuildProp Editor from Play Store
Set ro.secure.storage=false
Reboot, setup Wi-Fi & reboot again
WiFi should now remember passwords if there was an issue with secure storage.

Step 2 ---> if the prob exists I'd suggest you to go into /data/misc/wifi/ and find the *wpa_supplicant.conf file. In this file the device stores every WiFi entry.
Open it and see if there are duplicates: when you enter a password more than once this file creates more than one voice, resulting in multiple entries for the same network.
If this is the case then it's normal that the device asks you for the password again (because in case of entries conflicts it doesn't know which one to use).
I have noticed in my case in the same folder /data/misc/wifi/ there is another file named wpa.supplicant.bak.conf what i did (i don't know if its risky) I deleted this wpa.supplicant.bak.conf file and rebooted and connected and input my password normally, this time the file *wpa_supplicant.conf seems to store my password and i rebooted to check, and wow, i did it. now its storing all the passwords.
please let me know if it helped anybody.

hi guyyzzz
first of all root your device
install buildprop editer root
open app and change ro.securestorage.support=true
change true to false and save...
Restart from 2 to 3 times it should work...
It worked on my note 3
THUMBS UP

solution to not remembered wifi passwords
Had this problem for months and solved it just now by deleting some old networks from the list of remembered networks. It seems that the problem was due to exceeding the number of networks kept in memory. Hope this helps someone, I have not seen this suggestion anywhere.

That's correct. It's not ro.secure.storage as mentioned earlier. It's ro.securestorage.support that must be set to false.
