Connecting to a WiFi network on your iPhone requires you to input the password of the WiFi you’re about to connect to and after that, you won’t see the WiFi password again. Android, on the other hand, has an option to show the password of the WiFi network they are connected to after they’ve connected. So in this guide, we will be showing you how to find WiFi password of the WiFi network you’re connected to on your iPhone and you can do that through various means. Without further ado, let’s get right down to it.
How to Find Wi-Fi Password on iPhone Through Router Settings
You can find out the WiFi password of your WiFi network by going through your router settings as the admin. To do this, simply follow the steps below.
- Access the admin page of your router which is usually in a form of an IP address and requires a username and password. If you don’t know the IP address to access, simply navigate to Settings >> WiFi then find the WiFi name you would like to know it’s password and Click the “i” icon next to it. It should bring up a lot of details about the WiFi network including the IP address. Now copy the IP address and paste it in your Safari browser or any other browser you have.
- Once the page loads, you’ll be prompted to enter your username and password which is usually “admin” as the username and also “admin” as the password for most routers if you haven’t changed it. Alternatively, you can search online for “default password for (your router name) router model” if you haven’t changed the username and password and admin doesn’t work.
- After Logging into your router admin page, navigate to the “wireless settings” to see the iPhone WiFi password.
Note: if you don’t own the WiFi router or someone else has changed the admin username and password then this method won’t work for you. See the second or third step.
How to Find Wi-Fi Password on iPhone Through iCloud Keychain Sync

How to Find Wi-Fi Password on iPhone Through Bluetooth

These methods above are on how to find the WiFi password on iPhone as well as some other alternatives, mainly for iOS device that aren’t jailbroken. However, if you have a jailbroken device then you can find out the WiFi password of any WiFi network you’re connected to through some Cydia tweaks like “NetworkList” or “WiFipasswords” just to name a few. These tweaks will be able to show you all the WiFi networks you’ve connected to as well as their Passwords.
