Can You Get Your Wi-Fi Password from Your iPhone

If you have done some searches, you must know that there is no built-in feature on an iPhone that will help you to get to the saved Wi-Fi passwords on your device. Even if you can share a Wi-Fi password from your iPhone to another iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac, you can't actually see the typed Wi-Fi password in detail.

Then is there any solution to find and get a Wi-Fi password from iPhone?

Of course, there is. To help you manage your passwords better, there are various iOS password managers that perform well to find saved passwords on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. The Wi-Fi passwords saved on your iPhone can be easily viewed with such a tool.

In addition, the Keychain Access app on Mac can show Wi-Fi passwords on your iPhone after you enable iCloud Keychain on both your mobile device and the Mac.

In some situations, the router may be available. If so, you can directly check the label stuck to the router to view the Wi-Fi password.
