How To Quickly and Easily Share Your Wi-Fi Password in iOS 11

In iOS 11 Apple has made it quick and easy to share your Wi-Fi password.

Wi-Fi passwords are a pain. They’re hard to remember and often to complex to easily tell someone.

Now, when family and friends stop over you can automatically log them into your Wi-Fi network without revealing the password or typing it into every guest’s device.

Let me demonstrate how easy this is. Note: If your friend is already in your Contacts and has bluetooth enabled skip to Step 3.

Step 1: Add Your Friend To Your Contacts App

• On your iPhone, tap the Contacts App

• Tap the Add button

• Enter the Contact Information for your friend and tap Done

Add Contact

Step 2: Turn Bluetooth on For Both Devices

• Tap Settings

• Then Tap Bluetooth

• Now Tap the Bluetooth switch to on

Bluetooth On

Step 3: With Your Device Nearby, Have Your Friend Join Your Wi-Fi Network

• On your friends device tap Settings

• Tap Wi-Fi

• Tap the name of the Wi-Fi network

Wi-Fi Network

• When your friend taps the name of the Wi-Fi network, a password box will be displayed on the device and a card will appear on your device. Tap Share Password and the Wi-Fi connection will occur, without them having to lift a finger to type the password.

• When the connection is complete you’ll be notified on your device. Tap Done (If you get a message telling you the password is incorrect, you may need to reboot your device and try again.)


This might seem like a small thing that you may only use a few times, but when you have to use it Apple has made it very simple. This is a great example of the continuous refinements and improvements seen across iOS 11. With each new update Apple is making our devices that much easier to use.
