Next to the network name, tap on the (i) info button.
You will be prompted to enter your device passcode.
Once done, you will be able to see the network password under the Password section.
Apple is expected to release iOS 16 this fall, which will include a new feature that allows users to view their saved Wi-Fi passwords. This will be a huge help for users who have trouble remembering passwords, or for those who need to share passwords with others.
Apple iOS currently offers the ability to share a Wi-Fi network among devices, but the process is restricted to Apple products and doesn’t show the password. If you tried to connect your Nintendo Switch or smart TV to the internet this way, you’d be out of luck unless you had the actually written password.
Apple has just released a new iOS update that includes a very handy feature: the ability to see the Wi-Fi password. This can be especially helpful if you need to share the password with someone else, like a family member or friend. To view the Wi-Fi password, go into your settings and find the network you’re connected to. The password will be displayed next to “Security.” You can then copy and paste it into a text message or email and share it with anyone you need to.
How to Get a Saved Wi-Fi Password on iOS 16?
In order for this to work, you must either have connected your device directly through Wi-Fi or be near enough so that it can detect signals from the router. Once it does, the password will be stored in your device’s settings. Here’s how to get it:
Launch the settings application
Go to WiFi
Find the Wi-Fi network you wish to log into, then tap it. Tap on the blue information icon to the right of the network name to bring up a list of options.
To view your password, tap on Password and select Face ID, Touch ID, or enter your password.
Copy your password to the clipboard
It’s that simple! Just remember that this only works for networks that you’ve already logged into. If you’re trying to get the password for a new network, you’ll have to ask the owner for it.
This is not a new feature in iOS 16, but it’s one that’s sure to be welcomed by many users. With the ability to view saved Wi-Fi passwords, it’s now easier than ever to share passwords with others or simply to keep track of them yourself. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
