In this article, I will explain how to share WiFi passwords on an iPhone or iPad so you can help your friends and family quickly connect to your WiFi network.

Apple’s new feature is called “Share Your Wi-Fi”,  If you want to connect to a friend’s Wi-Fi network but nobody at the location can remember the password, to share WiFi passwords on an iPhone or iPad, make sure that your devices are very close to each other. If your devices are too far apart, they may not be able to share WiFi passwords. Just to be safe, hold your iPhone or iPad right next to the other iOS device you want to share a WiFi password with.
