    Unless your iPhone is jailbreak, you can use ifile to navigate to the file that store wifi password of the wifi that ever connected to the iPhone.

    For security reasons you cannot do that in stock iOS.

    Do you have a source (link) that indicates that is is for security reasons?

    Wifi passwords are hidden to prevent others from getting them, regardless of the Apple device. There's entirely too many scenarios... devices for students used in schools connected to wifi, devices connected to wifi for employees used at companies, parents who don't want their kids seeing the wifi password, parents who don't want their kids friends seeing the password on their device... etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc..

    Or ... Apple did it that way for other reasons ...

    They could have easily made it such that one could view one's stored WiFi passwords by entering the security code or password on the device. This would have still been secure.

    Apple is all about security. I can't think of any other reasons, but I do encourage posting thoughts and ideas.

    I wholeheartedly agree. 100%.
