Share your Wi-Fi password from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

Learn how to share your Wi-Fi network password with friends and family.

Before you begin

  • On both devices, turn Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on; if either of you have Personal Hotspot on, turn it off.
  • Make sure your Apple ID is added to the other person's Contacts app.
  • Keep the other person's device nearby, within Bluetooth and Wi-Fi range.

Share your Wi-Fi password

  1. Make sure your device (the one sharing the password) is unlocked and connected to the Wi-Fi network.
  2. Select the Wi-Fi network on your friend or family member's device (the device you want to connect).
  3. On your device, tap Share Password, then tap Done.

  • Password sharing only works with Apple devices on iOS 11 or later, and macOS High Sierra or later.
  • If you don't see the setup animation, restart both devices and try again.
  • If you still can't share your Wi-Fi password, have the other person enter the password manually.
