You might be wondering how to share a Wi-Fi password. Well, I am going to tell you how to share a Wi-Fi password and also how to prevent someone from stealing your Wi-Fi connection.
There are many ways to share Wi-Fi passwords. One way is through email or text message. Another method is using QR code. The third option is sharing the password via social media. There are other methods too, such as using a web browser extension.
Sharing a Wi-Fi password is a very simple task. Today we’re going to be showing you how to do it so that all of your guests can enjoy the internet without any of the hassle.
Sharing Wi-Fi From Your Phone
Thanks to new updates from both Apple and Android, you can now share your Wi-Fi password from your phone. This allows you to use your phone to connect all of your other devices to the Wi-Fi without having to type out long codes over and over again.
Both iPhones and Androids have slightly different methods of sharing the Wi-Fi with other devices, so let’s go through both methods now.
Apple released a new update in iOS 11 that allows you to share Wi-Fi, so you will need to be on iOS 11 or a later update.
Make sure that your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth is on and search for connections.
On an iPhone, first open Settings then click on Wi-Fi. Now scroll down until you see something like “Wi-Fi Password” and tap on it.
On an Android phone, sharing your Wi-Fi password is even easier than on an iPhone. This is because you don’t need to rely on a popup to share your Wi-Fi. Instead, there is a button in Settings that you need to find.
Make Sure That Your Wi-Fi And Bluetooth Are Turned On
First, make sure that your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are turned on. Then open settings and select Wi-Fi.
Scroll Down And Select Wi-Fi Network
Next, scroll down until you find the name of your current Wi-Fi network. Tap on it and tap on the three dots icon located next to it. A menu will appear where you can choose to share the Wi-Fi passcode.
Here there will be a QR code in which other devices can scan to connect without having to type in the long Wi-Fi code.
Can You Share Your Password Through Windows?
No, Windows doesn’t currently have a feature that allows you to share your Wi-Fi with other devices. However, there is still a way that you can share the password easier than having to type it out multiple times.
This is through copying the Wi-Fi code through Settings.
Click On Wi-Fi Connection
Open Settings and head to Network and Internet, then Network and Sharing Center. Click on the name of your Wi-Fi connection and find the Wireless Properties button.
Head To The Security Tab
Head to the Security tab and click on Show Characters. The password should now be visible in the Network Security Key option.
You can copy this password and send it to other devices so that you can copy it there and paste it into the Wi-Fi password box. This saves time if you don’t want to have to type out the password again. It can also be useful when you have misplaced the Wi-Fi password and need to find it for future use.
Sharing your Wi-Fi password is easy. All you need to do is turn on both your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and search for networks to connect to. There is a different method for Android and Apple phones, so make sure that you’re using the right method.
Windows don’t use a feature for you to share your password with others, but they do have a very useful feature in which you can see the Wi-Fi password to send it to others through copy and paste.
