Apple iOS 16 Lets You See Your WiFi Network Password, Here's How

However, this update shows the network password to which you are currently connected to. To check the password, you will need to authenticate with a Face ID, Touch ID, or a password, and then you will see an option to copy it.

This new feature will be really helpful when you have visitors at your house, or you are at a friend’s house. In such a situation, we don’t have the Wifi password, and many times we don’t remember the password of our own network. Those days are now gone; if anyone asks for your Wifi password, you can easily check it on your iPhone.

This update is available only on iOS 16, so you can’t view it if your device is running on iOS 15.

The new feature is available on iPhone.

  1. Open the Settings page on your device and go to the WIFI section
  2. Tap on the Network to which you are connected to.
  3. You will see a new “Password” option.
