This is for the tough guys. This post is not intended to breach Android user’s privacy to controlling their protected wireless hotspot rather to view saved Wi-Fi Passwords.
Assuming someone or a friend shared the password to her hotspot but you mistakenly deleted the saved connection. This post will help you to recover saved wifi passwords. This will work if the person hasn’t changed the password.
I will be using ES Explorer for you because it is free. It looks long but it is very simple.

Proceed to view your saved wifi password
SSID contains the name of the wifi networks that you have connected to. If you could view the image below, the networks that i have connected to are four (4).They are “MTN BB Mobile Hotspot 3371”, “SSS”, “emmason”, “ADYYU3Vu”.
PSK contains the passwords to the wireless networks. All the above listed network names have unique passwords assigned to them
Key_mgmt contains the security type assigned to the network. It is either “NONE”, “WPA-PSK” or “WP2-PSK”. You don’t need to worry about this.
Now, you can reconnect to that particular network and provide the password assigned to it. If the owner haven’t changed the password, then you and your friends are lucky.
