Here’s how you can share your Wi-Fi password to another iOS device running iOS 11 on iPhone and iPad. Having an elaborate, secure password on your wireless network can be a great thing. But if you have visitors or guests in the home, they try your 20-character Wi-Fi password a dozen different times because a zero looks like an O or they couldn’t tell from your desk which letters are capitalized and which aren’t. Worry not, iOS 11 makes sharing your WiFi password simple and easier.

With iOS 11, sharing that password just got much better and quicker. You can easily share it using iOS devices running the given version or computers running macOS High Sierra. All you will need to have is their contact information saved in your device’s address book.
