Yesterday, we discussed the second part of our tech giants coming to the west series with Huawei. What people may not know, however, is that Huawei owns a company by the name of HiSilicon.

WiFi Reminder App Helps Users Remember Passwords/Networks
The world is full of WiFi hotspots. From the router in your home to the number of routers in your office to every Tim Horton’s, Starbucks, Panera Bread and cyber bar in between, there seems to be a way to connect to a WiFi connection anywhere. You know, unless you absolutely need one, then they’re impossible to find.
Sometimes you may forget a password or forget which network you were connected to. This is a problem that XDA Senior Member Moikop is trying to fix with an app called Wi-Fi Reminder.
It’s a fairly simple application that, once you connect to a WiFi service, will remember that WiFi service and its details, including the password you entered to get on it. For those suffering from short term memory loss or just happen to connect to a lot of hotspots, this application could be extremely useful. Says Moikop:
All you need to do is launch the app, give root permisses, and in a few seconds you can see all the networks you have previously been connected to with it’s password.
It has two languages: English and Spanish.
So if this looks like something you’d like to have around your Android device, you can check out the original thread to download the app and its prior version for free, screenshots and additional information.
