Get value from list of objects Firebase Android Studio


I have the following code:

    public void signOn(String id, String password){
        usersReference.addListenerForSingleValueEvent(new ValueEventListener() {
            public void onDataChange(DataSnapshot dataSnapshot) {
                boolean valid = false;
                for(DataSnapshot singleSnapshot : dataSnapshot.getChildren()){
                    String key = singleSnapshot.getKey();
                    if (key.equals(id)) {
                        singleSnapshot.getValue()//THIS LINE THIS LINE
                        Intent myIntent = new Intent(WelcomePage.this, MainActivity.class);
                        myIntent.putExtra("key", key);
            public void onCancelled(DatabaseError databaseError) {


When I call singleSnapshot.getValue(), I get {password=passwordExample, username=usernameExample} as those are the keys and their values in my realtime database. How can I access the password value and the username value? Thank you.

>Solution :

One way to get it as HashMap and extract value from it, like this.

Map<String, String> map = (Map<String, String>) singleSnapshot.getValue();
String username = (String) map.get("username"); // You should pass exact key names here.
String password = (String) map.get("password");
