How to&Answers:

Usually the debug.keystore password is just “android“.

You can delete it and Eclipse will automatically generate a new one, as described here.

Answer:

The Default Configuration of debug.keystore file:

Keystore name: "debug.keystore"
Keystore password: "android"
Key alias: "androiddebugkey"
Key password: "android"
CN: "CN=Android Debug,O=Android,C=US"

where is this file located?

For Windows User: C:\Users\username.android\debug.keystore

For Mac OS User: ~/.android/debug.keystore

After you will get SHAH1 by below command using Command Prompt:

keytool -list -v -keystore “C:\Users\username.android\debug.keystore” -alias androiddebugkey -storepass android -keypass android
