  • I guess this could be done with a custom module. I'm going to give it a try and will post my findings if any.

  • Just in case, if anyone is looking a simple sample for Android to get SSID, feel free to have a look here: Android Module. Tested on 3.1.1.GA on Android 2.3.5 & 4.1.2.

    Simple sample:

    // open a single window
    var win = Ti.UI.createWindow({
      backgroundColor : 'white'
    var label = Ti.UI.createLabel();
    // TODO: write your module tests here
    var wifissid = require('org.appcelerator.wifissid');
    Ti.API.info("module is => " + wifissid);
    label.text = wifissid.example();
    Ti.API.info("module exampleProp is => " + wifissid.exampleProp);
    wifissid.exampleProp = "This is a test value";
    if (Ti.Platform.name == "android") {
        var WIFI_SSID = wifissid.getWifiSSID();
        Ti.API.info( "####### WIFI SSID: "+ WIFI_SSID ); 
        alert("WIFI_SSID: "+ WIFI_SSID );
