I am sharing those exact steps I followed to fix wifi password sharing issue from one iPhone to another iPhone.
I have successfully tried it for iPhone 8 plus, and it will also work for iPhone 6, 6s, 6 plus, 7, 7 plus, 8, X, XR, XS, 11, and iPhone 11 pro.
Let’s get into the details now…
Are you looking to share your WiFi password with a visitor at your place but having a tough time doing so? This is something that has happened to most of us.
The job has been particularly difficult for the ones who have complicated WiFi passwords consisted of special characters, letters, and numbers (a strong password should carry all of these).
The misery would come to an end if you have an iPhone (or any other iOS device) that runs on iOS 11 or above.
However, the person you will be sharing the password with should also have an iPhone or iPad.
Every iOS device comes with a special built-in feature that allows users to quickly and securely share their WiFi passwords from one iPhone to another (or to other iOS devices).
Here, it must be noted that for using this feature you will have to bring the two devices involved in the sharing close to each other.
The sharing is done using Bluetooth, WiFi, and the Apple Id of both the users.

You should check three things before you start sharing your WiFi password with any other iPhone.
Begin by checking whether both the iPhones have their Bluetooth and WiFi turned on.
For that, go to Settings>Wi-Fi and Settings>Bluetooth and turn them on by pushing the slider.
Next, find out whether you have the other person’s Apple ID and vice versa. This can be done by checking the email section under Contacts.

Here, we would like to mention that you will be able to share the password even if both devices have a common Apple ID.
Now, connect your iPhone to WiFi.
Bring the other device (i.e. the one not connected to WiFi) near your iPhone and go to Setting>WiFi.
Upon tapping on WiFi, you will be asked to choose the network you would prefer using.
Tap on the chosen option and you will see a password prompt appearing on your screen.
Unlock the connected iPhone and bring it close to the iPhone you are trying to connect.
Soon, you will see a prompt appearing on the connected iPhone asking you to share your WiFi password.
Tap on “Share Password” and that’s it.
Within a fraction of a second, the other iOs device will get the WiFi password. The second iPhone’s password box will autofill and the device will instantly get connected to the wireless network.
The above steps should help you to securely share WiFi password between two iPhones or any two iOS devices.
So, now, you can share wifi password iPhone to iPhone even you have set complex password for your wifi.
