Another option to know Wi-Fi password is WiFi Password Key or Wi-Fi Password Recovery Apps. There are many related apps in the Play Store. If you open the app after installing any app it will show you the names of your WiFi router companies. Clicking on your router name will show you a web page related to it. After entering your router username and password, you can click on the Wi-Fi section to find out your router password.
After going into the phone settings you need to click on the settings symbol next to the WiFi name. Then at the end of the screen you will see the QR code. You can share it with your friends and family. If they scan it, the Wi-Fi password will be known. Similarly, if you open any QR code scanning website and paste this code in your Wi-Fi QR code, the website will tell you your router Wi-Fi password.
With IP address
In this you have to type the IP address 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 in the web browser of your phone. Then your router web page will open. In it, type the username and password behind your router and go to the wireless page and scroll down to see your network key. Same with your Wi-Fi password.
However the above options only work on phones running Android 10 and later OS. You need to root your device to see the WiFi password even on phones running Android 9 or lower OS.
