Cydia Tweak: Quickly View Saved Wi-Fi Passwords With NetworkList
Have you ever been in a situation where you needed to connect to a Wi-Fi network, but couldn’t remember the password? Or maybe there’s a network you’ve connected to with your jailbroken device, but now you need to access that network on your Mac or PC. Well, the days of forgotten Wi-Fi passwords for computers may be a thing of the past. NetworkList is a new Cydia tweak that will list all saved Wi-Fi passwords that you’ve connected to from your jailbroken iOS device. Of course, in order for this tweak to be useful for the situation I mentioned, you must have previously connected to a specific network from your device in the past. That being said, if you have built good list of remembered networks, and you need to connect to one of them from a computer, this little tweak will definitely come in handy. [caption id="attachment_454597" align="aligncenter" width="169"] This option is added to the Wi-Fi settings.[/caption] Once NetworkList is installed, instead of asking around for the Wi-Fi password, launch the Settings app, tap on “Wi-Fi,” then select “Known Networks.” This option is made available via NetworkList and it will display a list of all known network names and their associated passwords. [caption id="attachment_454596" align="aligncenter" width="169"] Yes, my Wi-Fi password is "animalfarm." Don't judge me.[/caption] On top of that, you’ll be able to tap on a network in the list and copy the SSID or password. From there, you can email the information to someone or write it down and be on your way to connectivity back at your computer. Also, by tapping on the "Edit" button, you'll have the ability to delete any networks in the list. It may not seem like much, but I can think of many situations where this tweak would have saved the day. The best part is, NetworkList is completely free. If this had been available in the past, I would have easily paid at least $0.99 to save me from a forgotten Wi-Fi password nightmare. Thankfully, it’s available now and you can install it via Cydia’s BigBoss repository for free. There are no options to configure for this tweak.
