Are you tired of manually typing in your WiFi password every time you want to connect your MacBook to your iPhone’s hotspot? Well, fret not! In this tutorial, we will show you how to easily share your WiFi password from your iPhone to your MacBook with just a few simple steps.


To follow along with this tutorial, you will need:

  • An iPhone running iOS 11 or later
  • A MacBook running macOS High Sierra or later
  • Both devices must be on the same iCloud account and connected to the internet

Step 1: Enable Personal Hotspot on Your iPhone

The first step is to make sure that the Personal Hotspot feature is enabled on your iPhone. Here’s how:

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on “Personal Hotspot”.
  3. Toggle the switch to enable Personal Hotspot.


If you don’t see the “Personal Hotspot” option in the Settings app, it may be because your carrier does not support this feature. You may need to contact your carrier for more information.

Step 2: Connect Your MacBook to Your iPhone’s Personal Hotspot

Now that you have enabled Personal Hotspot on your iPhone, it’s time to connect your MacBook to it. Here’s how:

  1. On your MacBook, click on the Wi-Fi icon in the menu bar.
  2. You should see your iPhone’s hotspot listed under “Personal Hotspot”.
  3. Click on your iPhone’s hotspot name to connect.

Step 3: Share WiFi Password from iPhone to MacBook

With your MacBook now connected to your iPhone’s hotspot, let’s share the WiFi password. Follow these steps:

  1. On your MacBook, open the Safari browser.
  2. Type any website URL in the address bar and press Enter.
  3. You will see a notification on your iPhone asking if you want to share the WiFi password with your MacBook. Tap “Share Password”.


If you don’t see the notification on your iPhone or if it doesn’t automatically share the password, make sure that Bluetooth is enabled on both devices and that they are in close proximity.

Step 4: Enjoy Seamless WiFi Connection

Congratulations! You have successfully shared your WiFi password from your iPhone to your MacBook. From now on, whenever you want to connect to your iPhone’s hotspot, it will automatically use the saved password without requiring manual input.

Now you can enjoy a seamless internet connection without the hassle of typing in passwords every time!
