Forgetting a WiFi password can be frustrating, especially if you have a lot of devices connected to the network. Fortunately, on an iPhone, it’s possible to view saved WiFi passwords without having to root the device. In this article, we’ll show you how to do it.
Step 1: Find the Router’s IP Address
The first step is to find the router’s IP address. This can usually be found on the back of the router or in the manual. Alternatively, you can use a network scanner app to find the IP address. Once you have the IP address, open Safari on your iPhone and enter the IP address into the address bar.
Step 2: Log in to the Router
Next, you’ll need to log in to the router. You’ll need the username and password, which can also usually be found on the back of the router or in the manual. Once you’ve logged in, look for the WiFi settings or security settings.
Step 3: Find the WiFi Password
Once you’re in the WiFi settings, look for the section that shows the WiFi password. This may be labeled as “WiFi Password,” “Security Key,” or something similar. Select the password and copy it to your clipboard.
Step 4: View the Saved Password on Your iPhone
Now that you have the WiFi password, you can view it on your iPhone. Go to Settings > WiFi and select the network you want to view the password for. Tap on the “i” icon next to the network name, and then tap on “Share Password.” The saved WiFi password will appear in the password field, and you can copy it to your clipboard if needed.
It’s important to note that this method only works if you’ve connected to the WiFi network at least once before. If you’ve never connected to the network, the password won’t be saved on your iPhone.
