My Android device (A Samsung Galaxy S7 SM-G930F, version 6.0.1) has different wi-fi networks saved. I would like to recover some of the password it has stored. Browsing through the web I searched possible solutions but none of it has worked for me.
- Stored password in wpa_supplicant.conf are encrypted, and even if I change the build properties "ro.securestorage.support" to false, old password remain encrypted or get deleted, and I would like to recover those.
- I know that wi-fi password usually get backed-up on google drive, but I have no idea how to recover them from the backup online.
- I heard about an Xposed module "Wifi password" which supposedly should show the wifi password instead of the normal dots, but I have a TouchWiz device and if I install the Xposed Framework i'm afraid it would wipe my data, included my wifi password.
I understand that encryption is meant to keep safe your password, but as far as I know, every time I try to connect to a wifi network it uses the real password, so they have to be stored somewhere or decrypted on the go.
Can anyone help me?
EDIT: As I said, if I change
ro.securestorage.support property on
build.prop file, my stored password either get deleted or they remain hashed.
If i delete
all saved WiFi hotspots will be lost for the first time.
Also as said in the comments, the password isn't encrypted so there's no "way" to decrypt it, but it's hashed and there should be a way to recover it
