If you have guests in your house, they may request the Wi-Fi password so they can reduce their mobile data consumption and browse safely on your secure home Wi-Fi network. Apple has now made it easy to share your Wi-Fi password via Bluetooth.

Nonetheless, sharing passwords should be done with caution and discretion. For security reasons, you may not wish to provide your password in some circumstances. In other cases, it is difficult to login because the password is so long and intricate.

If you have two iOS devices, one connected to the internet and the other waiting to connect, you can share the Wi-Fi password without sharing it. In other words, you can use your iPhone to grant another device access to a private wireless network without requiring a password.

How to share Wi-Fi on iPhones

Can you share your iPhone’s Wi-Fi password with another iPhone? Yes! First, you must ensure that both iPhones are running an updated version of iOS.

Moreover, you must add your Apple ID and the Apple ID of the iPhone you’re connecting. If they use the same Apple ID, there will be no issue. If you wish to share the password with a friend’s iPhone, however, you must add each other’s Apple ID to your contact list.

Then, obtain your iPhone and the other device with which you wish to share the Wi-Fi password. In a manner similar to Bluetooth, the closer the devices, the easier and stronger the connection.

On the receiving device, take the following steps:

  • Open the Settings app.
  • Select ‘Wi-Fi’.
  • Select the Wi-Fi network you want to connect to.

Now it’s time for the host device to share access. On that iPhone, follow the below steps:

  • You should see an alert pop up asking if you want to Share Your Wi-Fi.
  • Select the Send Password button.
  • Your phone will share access to the Wi-Fi network with the requesting phone.

After the password was successfully shared, you should be able to tap Done.
