Sharing WiFi Password on IOS Device

Wireless Fidelity(WIFI) is the name of a wireless networking technology that uses radio waves to provide wireless high-speed Internet. It is also the facility that allows computers, smartphones to connect to the internet and communicate with each other in the absence of wire. Wifi passwords can be too long and complicated which makes it difficult to share it.

Lately sharing wifi password in iPhone was very difficult and it needs to download the applications however those applications may be unreliable and often cause software crashes.

Fortunately, Apple integrated a safe and reliable WiFi password sharing feature with the release of iOS 11. As the password can be shared between the devices there are some criteria that allow the device to share the password.

First, make sure that iOS 11, which was released in Fall, if the device isn’t updated then you can update it from the setting app then tap General -> About. If you need to update iOS, go to Settings -> General -> Software Update tap Download and Install, This process can take a while so you need to plug in the device and provide the power source.

Secondly, when you’re ready to share WiFi passwords on an iPhone or iPad, make sure that your devices are in range with each other. Beyond this, the phone’s Bluetooth is also an important thing during the process. after the completion of all those, we are ready to share the password of the phones with each other.

1. Unlock your iPhone or iPad.

2. Hold your iPhone or iPad next to your friend’s iPhone or iPad.

3.An alert will appear on your iPhone or iPad asking if you want to Share Your Wi-Fi.

4.Tap the gray Send Password button.

5.Once the password is sent and received, tap Done.


Although Apple made it easy it may not work according to the plan on that case we need to be sure that the device is updated up to IOS11, make sure that they are in the range of each other.

If there is still a problem then we need to reset the network settings. If all the above solutions didn’t work there may be some hardware issue causing the problem, there is a tiny switch or an antenna that may be broken or may not be responding which needs to be maintained.
