I remember I did save my passwords for Wi-Fi/app, etc. on my Samsung. But I suddenly forgot the passwords for them, how do I find them instead.

                                                                                                                                                     – A User from Samsung Support Communities

I believe this Samsung user’s situation is by no means an isolated case, if you happen to also struggle with how to find various passwords on your own device, please follow this article to find out.

So why is this a problem? Nowadays, with the development of technology, the functions of cell phones are becoming more and more perfect. One of the features is that you don’t need to remember your password, but remember it through the device itself or your browser. In fact, it’s so convenient that most users choose to let their phones remember their passwords.

But this may also lead to the issue mentioned at the beginning, that is, some users may forget their passwords and when they want to find them, they don’t know where to find them. This article uses 3 ways to help users find these passwords. (Take Samsung device as an example)

Way 1: Find Biometrics Authentication from Samsung Pass

I believe that if you can’t find your wifi password or any other password, you may wonder does Samsung have a password manager? Of course, Samsung device has a very useful function, that is Samsung Pass. And you can use fingerprint, iris, or face recognition to log into your accounts, so you do not need to input an ID & Password to log in to websites anymore. This greatly saves the user’s time. But sometimes, some users may forget what password they used in a certain page, so now they can check it through Samsung pass. However, please note that this can only be found on sites where you have used biometric authentication or account.

If that’s what you’re looking for, then please refer to the following steps to find the Samsung Pass:

Step 1: Please select Settings > Biometrics and security.

Step 2: And you can see Samsung Pass from the drop-down menu.

Locate Samsung Pass

Locate Samsung Pass

Step 3: And under the Sign-in page, you will find a list of the accounts and websites that you are currently logged into using Samsung Pass.

There’re two requirements: The first is Android 8 or above should be installed on your device and the second is you must have a stable internet connection in order to use this service (via Wi-Fi or mobile data).

Way 2: Find Stored Web/Account Passwords from Chrome

Unlike the above method, this method works with most Android devices. But we’ll take a Samsung phone as an example as well. In fact, if you want to find the stored password then you need to make sure that chrome is remembering your password by default before. Because if you often use Google to log in to a website and the page requires your login and password, you will definitely see a prompt asking you if you want to save your account and password after you finish logging in. If you choose yes, then congratulations, you can use Google to retrieve your password if you cannot remember your password for the account you have logged into. It only takes a few clicks.

Step 1. Open a Chrome app on your Samsung phone.

Step 2. Click on the three dots in the upright corner and you’ll see Settings.

Choose Chrome Settings

Choose Chrome Settings

Step 3. After entering Settings page, please click Passwords. And you’ll see a list of all your saved passwords.

To check a specific password, please click the entry and then tap the Preview icon (eye-shaped button). But you may need to enter your screen passcode to unlock the password.

Way 3: Wi-Fi Password Recovery Tool – DroidKit
