When friends visit and need to connect to WiFi, it will cause embarrassment. At this time, how to find your WiFi password? Here are a few ways to view the connected WiFi password on different devices.

iPhone users cannot view WiFi passwords directly on their phones because Apple does not provide any such feature in iOS systems. But if the other party is using an iOS 11 or higher system mobile phone like you, and he is in your iPhone contacts list, he can enjoy your WiFi with him even without entering the WiFi password.
2. Select the same WiFi on the iPhone to be connected, and the phone will automatically start searching and trying to connect. When your iPhone receives the signal, a dialog box will pop up asking that do you want to share the WiFi password.
Note: If the other party is not using an iPhone but an Android phone, then the above method will not work. At this time, you can use a third-party tool, and then operate according to the second part—Android phone method. You will view the WiFi password on the scanning result, and connect to WiFi by manually entering the password.
If you can’t run on your mobile phone or computer or you failed, don’t worry, there is an ultimate way——enter the router admin page to check your WiFi password.
1. Open the browser of your mobile phone or computer, input the login IP address in the address bar of the browser to enter the router admin interface, here you need to enter the username and password, and click to sign in. Common router login addresses include 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, 192.168.2.1, and 192.168.3.1. But not all routers use these addresses to log in. You can check the label on the back of your router. If you don't know the username and password, you can try to fill in admin, 123456 or 888888, etc.
