5 Ways to Find and View WiFi Password on iPhone 13/12

DoubtUser Concern

“I've previously connected to a WiFi network on my iPhone but I've no way of finding out the password. So is there any way to view saved WiFi password on the iPhone?”

iPhone stores the password of a WiFi network that you have connected to. Once you connect to a WiFi network with password, you will not be required to enter the password the next time you connect to that same network unless the password gets changed.

However, once connected, your iPhone doesn't allow you to view the password on your device unlike Android devices that display WiFi password when you check settings.

What if you want to connect a new device to the WiFi network but you do not know the password? Well, in this article, we will show you some simple steps on how to find WiFi password on iPhone.
