Method 1: Through File Manager

Before getting started, you will need to download a file manager. There are a bunch of file manager apps for Android out there, but we strongly recommend you Root Browser that has been well received by a number of users so far. Once downloaded, just do the following:

Step 1: Launch the Root Browser app and head to data/misc/wifi folder. Note that you will need to grant the app root access if you have a root manager app installed.

Step 2: Once you are in the wifi folder, you should see a text file named wpa_supplicant.conf. Just launch it via a text editor app. The file will contain the details of your existing Wi-Fi networks and the networks you had earlier connected to. They are displayed in the following format:
