Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you need to connect your iPhone to a Wi-Fi network, but you can’t remember the password? Don’t worry, figuring out the Wi-Fi password on your iPhone is easier than you think! In this article, we will guide you through the steps to find the Wi-Fi password on your iPhone.

Method 1: Finding Wifi Password in iPhone Settings

If you have connected your iPhone to the Wi-Fi network before and it’s currently connected, you can easily find the password in the settings. Here’s how:

  1. Step 1: Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone.
  2. Step 2: Scroll down and tap on “Wi-Fi”.
  3. Step 3: Find the Wi-Fi network name that you want to find the password for and tap on the (i) icon next to it.
  4. Step 4: On the next screen, tap on “Forget This Network”.
  5. Step 5: Confirm by tapping “Forget” in the pop-up message.
  6. Step 6: Now, go back to the list of available Wi-Fi networks and reconnect to the same network.
  7. Step 7: When prompted for the password, instead of typing it again, look at your iPhone screen closely. The password will be displayed just below the Wi-Fi network name!

Method 2: Using Keychain Access on Mac

If you have a Mac connected to the same iCloud account as your iPhone, you can use the Keychain Access app to find the Wi-Fi password. Follow these steps:

  1. Step 1: Open the “Keychain Access” app on your Mac. You can find it in the Utilities folder within the Applications folder.
  2. Step 2: In Keychain Access, click on “Passwords” in the Category list on the left-hand side.
  3. Step 3: In the search bar on the top-right corner, type in the name of the Wi-Fi network whose password you want to find.
  4. Step 4: Double-click on the Wi-Fi network name from the search results.
  5. Step 5: In the new window that appears, checkmark “Show password” and enter your Mac’s admin password when prompted.

Method 3: Using a Router Admin Panel

If you have access to your router’s admin panel, you can find the Wi-Fi password there. Here are the general steps:

  1. Step 1: Open a web browser on your computer or laptop that is connected to the same network as your iPhone.
  2. Step 2: Type your router’s IP address into the browser’s address bar. Usually, it is something like “” or “192.1.1”.
  3. Step 3: Enter your router’s admin username and password when prompted.

    If you haven’t changed them before, check your router documentation for default login credentials.

  4. Step 4: Once logged in to the admin panel, look for the Wi-Fi settings or wireless settings section.
  5. Step 5: In this section, you should find the Wi-Fi password displayed. It might be labeled as “Wireless Key” or “Passphrase”.


In conclusion, there are several methods to figure out the Wi-Fi password on your iPhone. You can find it in the iPhone settings if you are currently connected to the network, use Keychain Access on a Mac connected to the same iCloud account, or access your router’s admin panel. Choose the method that suits you best and never worry about forgetting your Wi-Fi password again!

Remember, it’s always important to respect others’ privacy and only use these methods when you have permission to access the Wi-Fi network.
