IOS -> Android How to transfer saved wifi settings and passwords

Is there a way to restore or transfer wifi settings from the ios device which contains over 100 saved wifi network passwords and port them over to my new android device?

I would like to know if their are options with or without rooting either device.

Such settings (passwords) are encrypted, so no, you need to remake on the new device.

How do you manage to have a 100 working (needed) wireless connections?

Just make the new ones you need.

I have about 100+ wifi connections, ( i am sure you do too) office, home, friends house x 10, club, hotel, restaurant, airport, etc.

Now i have to ask all those places for their password all over again. Surely their is a more efficient solution to this when you change your phone.

You can transfer these encrypted wifi settings from ios to ios , but why not from ios to android.

Thanks

No, I only keep major ones.  There is no way to transfer between devices.

Use Robo Form, Sticky Password or like password manager to keep these in your password manager on any computer / device. That will help you.

Thanks, that would mean i need to enter wifi passwords in twice, once in robo form and another in ios or android wifi settings.  i still would face the annoying problem of re-entering the password.

i guess their is no solution to my problem because even though it is encrypted ios and android aren't too friendly.  I Mean if you change iphones you can port the passwords with icloud key chain even though its encrypted.  i just thought why not to android as well since you have control of keychain password and the android phone.

Thanks anyhow for indulging my question, i am sure many converts are facing the same issue.

Try Smart Switch.  They claimed to be able to transfer everything from IOS to Android.  Even the device settings.

sadly SmartSwitch seems to only work from IOS - > Samsung branded Android Devices.  It doesn't work on other Android Devices.

I will still confirm your answer as correct.

Thank you
