    Is that a root only app or something? Sorry, not familiar with that.
    Or is it something nefarious that sniffs out wifi passwords without others' knowledge?

    No its not a wifi sniffer it's just a app that remembers known wifi passwords

    hmm, not sure but perhaps I can try it on my device and let you know if I run into the same issue.
    Granted I don't have the same device, but my LG G3 is rooted. :)
    Do you have a link to the app?

    ok...just so we're on the same page, THIS is the app? (that's the first one that came up for me)

    And also, I think perhaps a move of this thread into the S4 forum may help so that others with your device can chime in? Would that be cool?

    okee dokee...
    Moved for ya:)

    Also, I'll try that app and let ya know what happens...(at least with device) :)

    Edit:
    just tried it and at first it gave me a message, something to the effect of, "app will not work, maybe your device is not rooted". I cleared data/cache for the app and tried it again.
    It worked and I can see the password for my home wifi.

    So perhaps others with your device can try it and give feedback ;)
