When you forget the Wi-Fi password, sharing the password can be helpful. By eliminating the need to repeatedly write long passwords, it is convenient and saves time and effort. Since the majority of us use mobile data these days, Wi-Fi access is frequently required as well.
We occasionally need to allow visiting friends or family members access to our home broadband. The same thing occurs if you visit a public location or someone else’s home. This can entail giving out or soliciting a Wi-Fi password, which isn’t always a good idea. When you are okay with sharing internet access but not the password, the password sharing function is helpful.
Both the Android and iOS operating systems have a sharing W-Fi password function that makes it quick and easy to exchange Wi-Fi network credentials (password) without having to manually enter them.
Here’s how Apple iPhone/iPad owners may exchange Wi-Fi passwords with others without having to go to the trouble of manually telling them.
- Make sure the most recent iPadOS or iOS version is installed on both devices.
- Activate Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on both devices. If either device activates Personal Hotspot, turn it off.
- Log in to iCloud using your Apple ID. Then check to see if the other person’s Contacts have the email address you use for your Apple ID saved. Additionally, confirm that your Contacts have their email address stored.
- Keep the other person’s Bluetooth and Wi-Fi-enabled device close by and within reach.
