View installed Certificates on Windows Phone8

As far as i know there is no possibility to access the certificate store on Windows Phone8 devices.
But i found out how to see all installed certificates. This can be very helpful for troubleshooting because Windows Phone8 doesnt show many error messages.


  1. access the setting WIFI
  2. select a wpa2 enterprise WiFi
  3. enable “Validate server certificate”
  4. Choose a certificate

This workaround is a bit circumstantial, but as far as i know the only way to check installed certificates.
