We've all been there, either as the guest or host, trying to remember, find or copy the house's WiFi password, but there is an easier, quicker and safer way to share this kind of password.
Did you know that on your iPhone or Apple device you can share a Wi-Fi password without actually sharing it?
Here is how to share a Wi-Fi password from iPhone and Apple devices.
Sharing a Wi-Fi password on iPhone
First, it's important that you and your friend have each other's Apple IDs saved in your contacts.
Next make sure your device is unlocked and connected to the Wi-Fi netowrk.
Both devices also need to have Wi-Fi and bluetooth turned on, but personal hotspot turned off.
On the receiving device, select the network you want to connect to.
Your device should now receive a notification asking if you want to share the Wi-Fi password.
Tap share password and then tap done.
As you can see, the process is straightforward and quick and in most cases will take a matter of seconds. No more worrying about upper and lowercase letters or reaching around the back of the router for the password.
Share your Wi-Fi password with or to an iPad or Macbook
If one or both of the devices is an iPad, the process is exactly the same as above.
For a Macbook, it should work just the same as well.
Share your Wi-Fi password from an iPhone to an Android device
First, you'll need to download a QR generator, such as Qrafter or Visual Codes.
Create a QR code for your home Wi-Fi network.
Scan the code on the Android device.
You may receive a confirmation on the Android device and you're done!
