    Just open the Play Store in Androidphone. Then search for and install the RootBrowser Liteapp if you do not have it on your phone yet. Once you haveinstalled the app, return to the app drawer, and then launch the app. Now moveto the Data/misc/wifi folder. Then locate thewpa_supplicant.conf file and click on it. Go to the RB Text Editor to get the conf file opened. When thecontent of the conf file shows up, find the network from which you wantto retrieve the password. The SSID row would give the name of the Wi-Finetwork, and the PSK row will give the password of that Wi-Fi connection. Nowyou can start connecting a different device to the Wi-Fi network using theretrieved right password.

    My dear friend.

    Please install the Root Browser Lite app from the Google Play store.

    Search for the app and install it.

    Then go to app drawer and launch the app.

    Go to Data--> Misc--> Wifi folder.

    Find the wpa_supplicant.config file and open it.

    After opening the file find the network from which the password is to be retrieved.

    Now there will be 2 rows.

    SSID row will give the wifi network's name.

    PSK row will give the password for that network.

    That's it.

    You can now connect your device to wifi.

    Regards
