Where and how can I see my WiFi connection passwords that I've saved on my Galaxy A12. My landlady has gone away so I can't get into the bit where the router is. I already log in automatically however I need password so I can get my laptop working. But can't see any of my saved passwords but only the networks.

@Simon88874: The passwords won't be visible in Settings > Connections > Wi-Fi once they have been entered, I'm afraid. If you're able to automatically connect to the Wi-Fi on your A12, why not use it as a hotspot to connect your laptop by heading to Settings > Connections > Mobile hotspot and tethering > Mobile hotspot > On > Make a note of the 'Network name'. Now, on your laptop, select the hotspot from the list of available connections, and you can use this as a workaround until your landlady returns. I hope this helps.

@Simon88874: When you enable the hotspot on your A12, the password should be visible towards the top of the screen, below the network name. For more information, please take a look at the 'How to configure a Mobile Hotspot' section via the link below.

I managed to do it the end. As all I did was change the hotspot password as I just used the original one that came with the phone. Even though I've had the phone a good 3 yrs now I've never had to use hit spot. But thanks for all you guys for being supportive and patient. Until next time God Bless you all..
