Backup & Restore does not transfer wi-fi passwords

As the subject says, I cannot restore the wifi aps and passwords from my old z3.

 

I'm guessing it is because oreo changed the location the wifi config file is saved? In any case, having this issue fixed would be nice.

Re: Backup & Restore does not transfer wi-fi passwords

I got the same problem exactly moving from Z3 (Dual) to XZ1.  I didn't found how to transfer it, so I made in my way. Because my Z3 was rooted - i used a program "Wifi Password Show" https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.phuongpn.wifipasswordshow

I've had the same issue. I restored it with the Google data when setting up the phone...
