If you wonder what the password is of a WiFi connection that is currently active or setup on your iPhone, then you'll be surprised how easy this is.

  • Open “Settings” on you iPhone or iPad, and go to “Wi-Fi”.
  • Tap the WiFi connection whose wi-fi password you want to see, so its details will be shown.
  • Tap on the password field (on the bunch of dots ••••••••) - you may need to authenticate - but the password will then be revealed.

Note: you can copy the password if you'd like by tapping the "Copy" button.
