Display Your WiFi SSID in the Status Bar

If you’re a college student living in university housing or if you reside in a densely populated area, chances are that you have dozens of wireless networks in range. You may also have different WiFi networks in range that you connect to depending on task. For example, some schools and companies only allow users to access certain resources if locally connected. This then becomes an issue when you have many potential networks to connect to, as these resources may or may not work.

Luckily, it’s not very hard to check what WiFi network you’re connected to. Simply swipe down from your status bar with two fingers, and stock Android will tell you. However, that’s still one step that can be done away with. XDA Senior Member pyler created a simple Xposed module called XSSID Indicator that places your connected wireless network’s SSID right in the middle of your status bar. And since this area’s not ordinarily occupied by any information, there’s practically nothing to lose.

Naturally, you must be rooted and have Xposed Framework in order to apply this modification, but that’s the vast majority of us at this point. Head over to the module thread to get started.
