How to Find WiFi Password on iPhone without Jailbreak?
The possibilities of finding WiFi password on iPhone depends upon some scenarios whether you have access to the router or hotspot device or not. Another factor that can help in finding the WiFi password on iPhone is whether the iCloud keychain is enabled or not.
Anyways, whatever be the scenario with you, here I’m listing down all the methods you can use to find WiFi password on iPhone.
Access the Router to get WiFi Password on iPhone
Of course, you should be sane enough to know that you can’t just crack open your iPhone to see the password. So, you can take the help of your iPhone to see the IP of the connected network.
Simply go to the WiFi option from the Settings app and then tap on “i” right next to the connected network as shown in the screenshot above.
Here, you will get your Router’s IP. Simply type that in your browser to access router’s admin portal and then log in to find the WiFi or Wireless settings where you will get the password to the WiFi network.
In case you do not know the credentials to log in to your router, you can try the default username and password combinations like “admin” and “password” or similar. You should refer to the official documentation of the router you have.
Keychain Access on your Mac to Know Password
For this, you need to make sure that you have Keychain feature enabled on your iPhone. To do that, navigate your way to the following:
Passwords & Accounts -> iCloud -> Keychain (On/Off)
Once you do that, you will have to utilize a Mac in order to retrieve the password of WiFi.
To get started, enable WiFi hotspot on your iPhone and connect to the network on your Mac. Next, you have to utilize Spotlight search (that you normally see on the right-side top corner on your home screen).
You can also press CMD+Space bar to open up the search. And, then type in “Keychain Access” to search. Now, you will just have to proceed with what you get after the search and look for the password for the network you want.
