Most devices automatically connect to the Wi-Fi they’ve logged in before, so it’s easy to forget Wi-Fi passwords these days. Luckily, recovering the passwords doesn’t have to be an impossible chore. With some simple steps, you’ll be able to see your password or share it with someone, avoiding looking at the bottom of your router and shouting random letters, numbers, and special characters at your friend on the other side of the room.

You can’t directly find a Wi-Fi password on your iPhone, but there’re some other options to share the WiFi of your iPhone.

In addition, the person’s Apple ID must be in your Contacts app and Bluetooth should be enabled on both devices.
- Place your iPhone near your friend’s iPhone.
- Then your friend should try to connect to the same network, until you see a “Share Your Wi-Fi” pop-up on your iPhone screen.
