The iPhone offers users a way to view Wi-Fi network passwords. To access this feature, you first need to authenticate using Face ID or Touch ID. Then, scroll down the list of known networks until you see a blue “i” icon. This indicates that you can view the password.
Sharing Wi-Fi network passwords
Sharing Wi-Fi network passwords is a common problem among iPhone owners. Usually, iPhone users must look for the Wi-Fi password on the router, or even worse, on an old, crusty piece of paper. Luckily, iOS 16 fixes this problem, and now sharing Wi-Fi network passwords is a breeze.
Before you can share Wi-Fi passwords with other iOS devices, you must make sure that both your devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. The first step is to make sure that you both have the same Apple ID. You can do this by adding each other’s email address to Contacts.
To share Wi-Fi network passwords between iPhone and iPad, you should add your Apple ID to both devices. Then, add the Wi-Fi network password to the network settings of the other device. Alternatively, you can also use a physical cable between the two devices. Once you’ve done that, you can share Wi-Fi network passwords on iPhone and iPad using iCloud Keychain.
Unlike Bluetooth devices, iPhones and iPads can’t share WiFi passwords with devices that are far away. When sharing Wi-Fi network passwords, you should hold the iPhone or iPad close to the other device. This will eliminate the possibility of out-of-range devices. Besides, before sharing Wi-Fi network passwords between iPhones and iPads, both devices should be running the latest version of iOS.
Finding saved Wi-Fi passwords
Thankfully, most smart devices will automatically remember your saved Wi-Fi network passwords. However, it can be a pain to find these passwords if you don’t know them by heart. Luckily, there are several hacks you can use to find your saved Wi-Fi passwords. First, open the Settings app on your iPhone. Scroll down to the Wi-Fi section and tap on the “i” tab. This will open up a new tab in Safari. This will bring you to the router’s login session.
Another way to find these passwords is to sync your iPad or iPhone with a Mac. To do this, go to your iOS device and select iCloud Keychain Sync. Next, turn on your iPad personal hotspot and connect it to your Mac. After that, you can see the saved passwords from your iPad in Spotlight. Make sure to add “keychain access” to the search.
If your iPhone is locked to iCloud, you can sync all of your Wi-Fi network passwords with your iCloud account. Alternatively, you can enable the Keychain access app in your Mac’s System Preferences. On iPhones, it’s switchable, and it syncs Wi-Fi network passwords with other Apple devices as well.
On Windows devices, sharing Wi-Fi network passwords is not an easy task. If you want to share your Wi-Fi password with a friend or colleague, you can use the clipboard option in Notes or Continuity Clipboard. This feature will let you copy and paste the password easily.
Syncing saved Wi-Fi passwords with iCloud
The first step is to sign in with the same Apple ID on both Mac and iPhone. Then, go to System Preferences. Scroll down to Wi-Fi, and tap Advanced. You should see a list of networks that your device is connected to. This is where you can enter or delete passwords. If you don’t want to sync saved Wi-Fi network passwords across devices, delete them.
If you have an iPhone, you can view the passwords stored on Wi-Fi networks that are nearby. You can also view all the saved passwords on your iPhone. In iOS 11 or later, you can also share Wi-Fi passwords with others. This feature is available in the Settings app.
Once you’ve saved a Wi-Fi password on your iPhone, you can access it on your Mac. Fortunately, iCloud Keychain allows you to access the same passwords across all Apple devices. You can also access your iPhone WiFi passwords on your Mac by signing into the same iCloud account.
The next step is to sync your passwords to iCloud. Once you have done this, you’ll need to enable iCloud Keychain on all your devices. Turn on iCloud Keychain and tap on “Sync.” Then, you’ll be able to access the passwords in Keychain Access, which is accessible from the Apple menu. Alternatively, you can click on the iCloud icon in the sidebar on your Mac.
