What to Do If You Forgot Wi-Fi Password on iPhone

Myra updated on Feb 03, 2023 | Home > iPhone Unlocking Tips

There are times when you forgot the Wi-Fi password on your iPhone and want to recover it. Actually, as long as you have saved the password for a Wi-Fi network before, you can easily retrieve it in two ways:

You can try an iOS password manager: Such a tool works to find any Wi-Fi password you have used on your iPhone. Thus, you can see typed Wi-Fi passwords on your iPhone with the help of it.

You can try the Keychain Access app: If you are also a Mac user, then you can enable iCloud Keychain and access your iPhone Wi-Fi password from the Mac computer via the Keychain Access app.

Depending on the computer you use, the suitable way for you varies. If you are a PC user, you should use a third-party iOS password manager. While if you are a Mac user, using the built-in feature on Mac to find Wi-Fi passwords on your iPhone is recommended.
