How to Reveal Saved Wifi Networks’ Passwords on iPhone and iPad

Posted in Apple7 years ago • Written by Hammad Rafique2 Comments

It’s rare now if someone uses a internet connection with LAN cable. I’m personally using Wifi on all of my 5 devices and also my family members do so. In some cities and high profile societies, Wifi networks are free and you can connect with them without any network key.

But care is always important if you’re using open Wifi networks, most of hacking cases happen just because of open Wifi networks, because they are filled with malwares and viruses. Wifi networks ask for passwords when you’re going to connect with them, the primary purpose of setting a password is securing wifi network, because if your Wifi isn’t secured with password then anybody can connect with it and also can make your network vulnerable with malicious scripts.

Yesterday, when I was trying to connect my iPhone 5 device with a newly purchased Wifi device’s network, it asked me to enter the key, I got it from my Android’s saved Wifi networks and simply added the key in iPhone 5 and started enjoying my new Wifi; but suddenly I realized that my iPhone 5 running iOS 7.1.2 doesn’t have functionality to reveal the password of saved Wifi networks.

It became another reason for me to hate non-jailbroken iOS devices, anyways my iDevice running iOS 7.1.2 is jailbroken with pangu and I found a simple utility on Cydia that helped me to reveal my saved Wifi networks’ passwords.

Wifi Passwords iOS

Because of the nature of the article and its title, many may misunderstand this article’s nature, that’s why I am making it clear that this article doesn’t teach you any trick to get others’ Wifi networks passwords, it will only help you to reveal your Wifi networks’ passwords on any jailbroken iOS device running iOS 7.0.x/7.1.x or any earlier iOS version.

The utility that helps you to make your Wifi passwords visible is called “Wifi Passwords”. The procedure to install it isn’t time taking, you are just required to search this utility in Cydia by typing its name in the search bar and from the search results install it and you’re done. This utility doesn’t need any configuration, just after a quick install, its icon will be shown on your Homescreen.

When you’ll open this utility, you’ll see all of the saved Wifi networks with their passwords on its interface.

Furthermore, you can share your selected password with others via email and also you can copy passwords to clipboard and later you can paste them in WhatsApp, Viber or at any social media app.

The “Wifi Passwords” utility is free of cost and is powered by BigBoss repo. If you also have any other utility or app’s suggestion then let us know via commenting on this article.
