Navigate to directory data/misc/WiFi and here is our wpa_supplicant.conf file which contains the saved WiFi passwords. Open this file in ES File Explorer’s built-in HTML viewer for the task.
So now you can easily find saved WiFi Password and make sure that you closed the file without editing otherwise your WiFi may freeze.
