If you’re having trouble remembering your WiFi password and want to share it with your friend or visitors, Apple has a handy tool that lets you share your WiFi password on your iPhone. This is designed to help you easily connect another device to your network without having to remember your password, all you need is an existing device connected to your WiFi network.
This can come in handy when you have friends you want to allow on your WiFi, or when you’re setting up a new device like a new iPhone or iPad, or even a new Mac.
This makes things a lot easier than having to remember your password and also manually adding it to another device. Follow these steps to use this handy tool to set up WiFi on additional devices on your network.
How do you share WiFi password on iPhone?
What you need to do is open the device you want to connect to the WiFi network. Then you need to go to Settings > WiFi and select the WiFi network you want to connect to. The device will then ask for a password.
Once the password prompt appears on your new device, open your iPhone or iPad connected to your WiFi network and go to the home screen. Place the device next to the new device you want to connect to WiFi.
You will then be prompted to share your password with this new device, click “Share Password” on your iPhone and the password will be transferred to the new device. You can then click “Done” on your iPhone and the new device is now connected to your WiFi network, all set up and ready to use.
A new device or your friend’s device will be able to connect to your WiFi network whenever it’s in range because the password is automatically saved on the new device. This is convenient for family members or friends who visit you regularly as they can easily connect to your WiFi.
This is a very useful feature when you want to easily connect someone to your WiFi network in your home or office without having to remember the password for the network. It’s also much faster than manually entering a password when setting up a new device. We hope you find this guide helpful and if you have any comments or questions please leave a comment below.
