NetworkList: save Wi-Fi passwords and SSIDs

By , Aug 27, 2013

NetworkList Hero

NetworkList is a recently released jailbreak tweak that allows you to keep a running list of the Wi-Fi networks known to your device. This list makes it easy to remember the Wi-Fi network names, and you can even use a tap gesture to copy the SSID or the password (which is shown in the clear) to your pasteboard.

Some may balk at the potential security concerns, but if that’s not something you worry about, NetworkList may be worth your time. Have a look at our video walkthrough past the break for more information.

Once you install NetworkList, you’ll see a new “Known Networks” section residing at the bottom of the device’s Wi-Fi settings menu. There, you’ll find a simple list of device and their respective passwords (if applicable). As mentioned, tapping on the name of the network will reveal a pop-up akin to the copy and paste menu, and from there you can copy the necessary details of the access point that you’re interested in.

If you’d like to take NetworkList for a spin, venture over to Cydia’s BigBoss repo where it can be downloaded free of charge. After you do that, be sure to drop us a line with your thoughts about the tweak in the comment section below.

      iOS 7 will save Wi-Fi passwords to iCloud and can be accessed on all your iCloud devices.

    This one is more nice as it’s integrated in WiFi Settings.

    • Raashid

      Though, lacks options to export them….

        Sorry, no need for this. Why to create a file with my Wi-Fi credentials? Some even consider only listing these in a app as a serious security risk.

        Integration in Settings is better.

        Not for your household wifi, for public areas and/or friends house. I mainly use it for that situation where you’re restoring to a new jailbreakable firmware, during which you loose all WiFi credentials…
