How to Share Wifi Password?

Your Wi-Fi password is private and you shouldn’t share it by text, note, or casual conversation. That’s so archaic it’s not even funny. Apple devices (iPhone, iPad) may exchange Wi-Fi credentials wirelessly through Bluetooth devices, whereas Android users can use a QR code. Have an iPhone and an Android and need to share a password? You’ll have to download a separate app for that.

Whether you have an iPhone, a Google Pixel running plain Android, or a Samsung Galaxy, we’ll show you how to easily share your Wi-Fi password across all of your devices.

How can I get my iPhone to Connect to My Friend’s iPhone Through Wi-Fi?

When using Apple products, exchanging a wireless network key is a simple and fast operation. However, you can’t share your Wi-Fi password using AirDrop since that feature only works with other password-protected files, such as applications, websites, and services.

Although an iPhone is a primary emphasis here, these instructions are equally compatible with an iPad.

#1. Getting the iPhones Ready for Action

  • To access the Settings menu, start by swiping down from the upper right corner.
  • Second, if the Bluetooth symbol is white, tapping on it will activate Wi-Fi. If the color is blue, you may proceed.
  • The next step is to check that both devices have valid Apple IDs logged in to iCloud and that the receiver has the sender’s email address recorded in their Contacts.

#2. The iPhone’s Password Reception

  • The first thing you need to do is launch the software responsible for configuring your device.
  • The second action is to choose the Wi-Fi alternative.
  • Third, choose the desired Wi-Fi network by tapping on it and then waiting.

#3. Transmitting the Password Using an iPhone

  • Connect your iPhone to the same Wi-Fi network you’ll be using for the sharing.
  • Launch the Settings app by tapping its icon.
  • Select the Wi-Fi alternative
  • Choose the network that will be accessible to others by tapping on it.
  • From the drop-down option, choose Share Password.

Steps for Android Devices to Connect to an iPhone’s Wi-Fi Network

  • Fifth, in the Password area, type the password for your wireless network.
  • Sixth, give your new label an actual name.
  • Click the blue button labeled “Create Code” to proceed to Step 7.
  • Follow Step 8 by tapping Create Code once again when prompted.
  • Access the newly generated QR code by tapping on it from the main Codes panel (shown below).

  • Initiate the Camera app by tapping on it.
  • Aim the camera on your Android device toward the QR code on the iPhone screen.
