Unfortunately, if we do not have root access on our Xiaomi, it is impossible to know the password of the saved WiFi. Even so, there is a small trick that allows us to show it , making use of the MIUI QR code reader.
This trick is as simple as sharing the WiFi connection to which we are connected via a QR code and then scanning it. Once done, the password will be shown in plain text , thus allowing us to view it without having root access.
Even so, this trick has a small drawback and that is that we can only apply it if we are connected to said WiFi connection . Even so, it is quite interesting if, for example, we do not remember the password that we entered at the time and now we want to connect a laptop and another device.

To be able to view the WiFi key without having root access on our Xiaomi, Redmi or POCO, we will only have to perform the following steps:

- Once inside and being connected to the WiFi connection of which we want to know its password, we click on it in order to show us the QR code to share.
- Once the code is displayed, we will only have to take a screenshot of it.

- Go to the Gallery and enter the screenshot made previously
