    Good morning. I am trying to install FiddlerRoot.cer on my Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini for wifi use but I am asked to "enter a password for credential storage" even if I had already selected a pin/password for the screen lock. No other user Trusted Credentials are installed on the phone. What could I do? thanks

    Hello, Goffredo--

    Android requires that you configure a password on your device when a certificate is installed (under the presumption that you'll be using that certificate to authenticate to things). 

    The PIN or Password requested is Android asking you to *add* a PIN or password to the device; the Fiddler certificate itself doesn't have any pin/password/key.

    maybe I didn't make myself clear. I already set a pin fot the device. pin for lock screen. is that correct?

    It might be helpful if you posted a screenshot of the device at the point of the prompt, but unfortunately this isn't something related to Fiddler itself so I'm not sure how much help I will be.

    It's possible that whatever version of Android you're using requires a password of a higher complexity after you install a certificate? Or that it's asking you for the device's existing password? I can't really say. 

    I can say that Fiddler's certificate itself (e.g. the .CER file downloaded from http://fiddlerPCIP:8888/FiddlerRoot.cer) does not have any password protection.

    Hi. thanks for answering again. I think too that it's  something related to my phone. I am having similar issues also trying to select a pin for my credit cards with my bank app, the bank which I work for and that gave me this galaxy s5.  A friend of mine has issues installing  fiddler cer on his s6 too. also his s6 is a business phone. I attach the screenshots that show in a sequence the selecion of pin for lock screen and then the issue installing the cer. The same process works just fine on my other phone which is a galaxy note2, an older model. I just would like to ask you also if this ever happened to other people and what they did to resolve it.

    thnak you

    Hello, Geoffredo--

    http://android.stackexchange.com/questions/17079/i-dont-know-what-my-credential-storage-password-is-can-anybody-help claims that you have to set an explicit password (not PIN) to add a certificate. Various other posts (when searching for the message ("enter password for credential storage") suggest that sometimes older Android phones require a complicated sequence to correctly set the password if a PIN were already in use.

    hi again

    I resolved the issue installing proxydroid on Memu and installing fiddlerroot.cer on proxydroid app. Now I can capture traffic from memu.

    thank you anyway!
