Finding out the Wi-Fi password on your mobile phone is possible using free apps. It is common for users to look for Wi-Fi networks anywhere they go, and many businesses have public access points for their customers. Some apps for Android and iPhone (iOS) help you find these networks, also showing your passwords.
Remember that these programs were not designed to find out your neighbor's Internet password. What they do is a mapping of nearby free networks. O dnetc has prepared a list of these apps. If you just want to find out the network password itself, we have an article that explains two ways that can help.

Instabridge is a free and shared community of public and shared passwords for Android and iPhone (iOS). On the home screen, you can see a list of nearby free networks, recognized by their open lock design. After choosing one of them, you can find out the password by clicking on the symbol with one eye. In addition, the app shows the time to arrive on site. Clicking on a drawing of a walking person will redirect you to Google Maps to track the route you need.
It is also possible to view nearby networks by means of a map. On the home screen, the option is at the bottom right. Just like in Google Maps, the blue dot represents you on the map, while the other colored dots show nearby networks. Greens indicate hotspots that work, while reds are those that may be inactive. You can get more information by clicking on the bottom menu or dragging the name up. The app also allows you to download maps to access offline. To do this, click on the account menu at the top right, and then "Offline Regies".

WiFi Magic (formerly Mandic Magic) has a free network map and is also available for Android and iPhone (iOS). Here, they are marked by pins and, when there are several nearby ones, they are grouped in a blue circle with the number of nets in that region. Clicking on any one will show the network name, the password with the option to copy it, and a symbol to view the route through Google Maps, Waze, or Uber. Dragging to the right will give you more information.
The app also lists nearby networks in list form. To do so, click on the cone at the top right. In this screen, open access points are marked with an open lock symbol, while those requiring a password are marked with a closed lock. The app also offers the Traveling? Option, which can be accessed from the main menu at the top left. From it, you can write the city you want to travel to and save all the free networks in the region for viewing even without a connection.

WiFi Map, available for Android and iPhone (iOS), also shows the free network map on the main screen. It indicates the type of establishment by means of different cones. To find out the password, I need to choose the symbol and click on the network name. On the screen that opens, click Unlock Password. The app shows the address, the distance and it is also possible to create a route there using Google Maps integration. The app even displays a list of networks near you. To do this, click WiFis next to me, and drag the menu up.
