If you have ever connected your iPhone to a Wifi network but forgotten the password, don’t worry! There is a way to retrieve it. In this tutorial, we will show you how to see Wifi password on iPhone.

Method 1: Using Keychain Access

If you have previously connected your iPhone to the Wifi network using your Mac, you can use the Keychain Access app on your Mac to find the Wifi password. Follow these steps:

  1. Open Finder and go to the ‘Applications’ folder.

  2. Open the ‘Utilities’ folder.

  3. Locate and open the ‘Keychain Access’ app.

If prompted, enter your Mac’s administrator username and password.

  1. In the search bar of Keychain Access, type in the name of the Wifi network you want to retrieve the password for. This will filter out other keychains and show only relevant results.

You should see an entry with a name similar to your Wifi network. Double-click on it.

  1. In the window that appears, checkmark the box next to ‘Show password’.

A pop-up window will appear asking for your Mac’s administrator username and password again. Enter them and click ‘Allow’ or ‘Always Allow’ if prompted.

  1. The Wifi password will now be visible in plain text next to ‘Show password’ checkbox. Note it down or copy it for future reference.

Method 2: Using a Router Configuration Page

If you have access to the Wifi router, you can retrieve the Wifi password by accessing its configuration page. Here’s how:

  1. Connect your iPhone to the Wifi network whose password you want to see.

  2. Open a web browser on your iPhone and type in the IP address of your router. Typically, it is something like ‘’ or ‘192.1.1’.

Note: The IP address may vary depending on the router model and settings.

  1. You will be prompted to enter the router’s username and password. Enter them to log in.

If you have never changed these credentials, consult your router’s manual or check for default usernames and passwords online.

  1. Once logged in, navigate to the ‘Wireless’ or ‘Wifi’ settings section.

  2. Look for an option called ‘Security’, ‘Password’, or similar.

The exact wording may differ depending on your router’s interface.

  1. In this section, you should find the Wifi password listed. It might be displayed as dots or asterisks for security reasons.

You can either note it down manually or look for an option to reveal/hide the password temporarily for copying.


By following one of these methods, you can easily see the Wifi password on your iPhone without much hassle. Remember to use this information responsibly and only retrieve passwords for networks you have permission to access.

Now that you know how to retrieve Wifi passwords on an iPhone, you can stay connected to your favorite networks even if you forget the password!
