Welcome to this tutorial on how to share your wifi password with Mac! Sharing your wifi password can be extremely useful when you have guests or friends who visit your place frequently. In this article, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of sharing your wifi password using your Mac device.

Step 1: Open System Preferences

To begin, click on the Apple menu located at the top-left corner of your screen. From the drop-down menu, select “System Preferences”.

Step 2: Go to Network Settings

Once in the System Preferences window, locate and click on the “Network” icon. This will open up the network settings for your Mac.

Step 3: Select Your Wifi Network

In the Network settings, you will see a list of available networks. Locate and click on your wifi network from the list.

Step 4: Click on Advanced

After selecting your wifi network, click on the “Advanced” button located at the bottom-right corner of the window. This will open up additional settings for your wifi network.

Step 5: Go to Wifi Password Sharing

In the Advanced settings, click on the “Wifi” tab. Here, you will find an option called “Wifi Password Sharing”. Click on it to proceed.


  • If you don’t see this option, make sure that you are connected to a secure wifi network and have administrative access to modify network settings.
  • If you are unable to find this option even after meeting these requirements, it is possible that your Mac device does not support wifi password sharing.

Step 6: Enable Wifi Password Sharing

In the Wifi Password Sharing settings, you will see a checkbox labeled “Share your password”. Click on the checkbox to enable wifi password sharing.

Step 7: Confirm Password Sharing

After enabling wifi password sharing, a prompt will appear asking for your confirmation. Click on the “Allow” button to proceed.

Step 8: Share Your Wifi Password

Once you have allowed password sharing, your Mac will generate a QR code containing your wifi network’s password. You can now share this QR code with anyone who wants to connect to your wifi network.


  • The person who wants to connect to your wifi network needs to have a compatible device with a QR code reader app.
  • If they scan the QR code using their device’s camera or a QR code reader app, they will be able to connect to your wifi network without entering the password manually.

Congratulations! You have successfully shared your wifi password with Mac.

Now you can easily allow others to connect to your wifi network without the hassle of manually entering the password. Enjoy seamless connectivity and convenience!
