Hi Guys...

I have a GS3 connected to a wifi network. I want to reteive the wifi network password from it. I know we can do it if the device is rooted. I also dont have access to ADB. Is there any other way to retrieve the password from the device without Root and ADB??

Just activade it at developers settings
Pull with ABD the file
/data/misc/wifi/ wpa_supplicant.conf
to your PC. There are saved all wifi-passwords ;)

Try using an app from the play store they will save the password for you if you have already entered it before.:laugh:

Sounds suspicious to me!

If it's a work phone why do you need the wifi password?

If it's already connected why do you need to know the password?

Why don't you just ask your network admin the password if you are allowed access?

Please explain yourself before I report you..

Oh ho.. cool man.. we are in need to test an application which needs internet.. earlier we got the password for a wireless network used by the adjacent team in one of our device.. now my manager is reluctant again going back to them begging for the password.. so he asked me any other way.. even i know how to do it when the device is rooted, but unfortunately the device is not rooted and i cant root it since its not mine.. and there is no adb setup available as well..anyways we got the password..this time he sent me to beg for it.. :p

Used Wifi Key Recovery and never had problems, got the HTC M8 and now when i open the app it show zero protected networks, even though i am on wifi, changed over to Wifi Password Recovery, this one does show all the networks i have logged into but when i press on one of them to get the password, i get HTC=ENCRYPTION:then bunch of letters, non of which are the passwords. Can this be disabled in the HTC, or is it a 4.4.2 issue. Thanks in advance for your help.

I found the keys but they are in Hex format. Even with the usage of a an escape (0x) the wireless card fails to connect using these 24 long passwords.
Does it mean they are encrypted? if so how to decrypt.

Yes, they are encypted. How to decrypt? hard to know before know what type of encryption they use, the result of encryption is a number show in hex... maybe transforming into pure binary and then transforming on something could work... but I really dont know... maybe is just a new type of encryption and the only way to decrypt is to create multiple password you know the result and compare the hex tags.

Hope someone could help us to avoid that kind of work xD

    Wtf are you on about you Nazi? No one here needs to explain anything to you. Hopefully by now you've pulled your head out of the proverbial dark and dank hole.

    I know this is old but I wanted to chime in anyway... I'm at a child's sporting event in which I connected to their WiFi last time I was here and one of the other parents asked me what the password was. Well I did a Google search to see if I could identify the password to save me a trip to the main office to ask them again. So it is possible that someone doesn't have malicious intent when they are asking...

    There are too many people in the world that believe everyone is inherently evil or has bad intent. Give people benefit of the doubt and look at the glass half full. Maybe they ARE the owner of the network but they are computer illiterate and don't know how to get into the router to check the password because "the Internet man" set it all up for them and now they need to let their friend get on their network... I'm sure there are more possibilities...
