How to Find iPhone WiFi Password on iOS 16

Finding the iPhone WiFi password on iOS 16 is relatively easy. However, there are several requirements that you must meet to do so.

Finding iPhone WiFi passwords on iOS 16 is the same as on iPad. The condition is that iPhone or iPad must run iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 or later.

The system will only work for WiFi networks you previously joined and your iPhone or iPad tablet has stored credentials for the connection.

That way won’t work for WiFi networks you haven’t connected to. Because you must first enter a password to the operating system.

For added security, Apple has also set up a feature so you can’t see your passwords without going through Face ID or Touch ID authentication.

That security will stop anyone who knows the iPhone passcode or finds an unlocked iPad from getting the same WiFi credentials.

There are two methods to do this. It’s easiest if you’re within range and can connect to the WiFi network you really need.

How to see WiFi Password on iOS 16

  • Open Settings
  • Choose WiFi
  • Tap the blue “i” icon next to the network you want details on
  • Tap the hidden password from the view
  • Comply with Face ID or Touch ID authentication requests
  • The password will be visible until you exit the screen in the Settings app

You will be given the option to copy the password in plain text. You can paste it into a text message to someone else instead of manually retyping it.

If you’re not within range of a network, or if you want to know about a connected WiFi network, you can view it if it’s saved to your iPhone.

  • Open Settings
  • Choose WiFi
  • Tap Edit in the top right corner
  • You may need to re-authenticate using Touch ID or Face ID to continue
  • Scroll through the list of known networks and tap on the blue “i” icon next to them
  • Tap a password to see if it’s available

While Apple has made it easier for iPhone or iPad owners to see previously used passwords, be careful when retrieving them.

Because it is part of the security for network connections. Pay attention to where or to whom you give your password. Never be rash.

There is no guarantee that a password you give to one family member will not spread to others. You should prioritize caution.
