2. How to find out the Wi-Fi password on your cell phone
When a cell phone is connected to a network, it does not display the Wi-Fi password. Therefore, it is more complicated to share a private network password with friends. However, because it is connected to the router, the smartphone offers a way to view the code for users. In some cases, when the person changes the default settings for access, the only way to view the characters is through the LastPass application. To help our readers, we prepared a tutorial to find out the Wi-Fi password by cell phone, which was the second most read step by step of the year.
