Share Your Wifi

Share you password without trying to remember it.

It can be a hassle to type or give out your long, complicated password to each and everyone who wants to connect to your Wi-Fi. iOS 11 solves this problem with an innovative new feature called ‘Share Your Wi-Fi’ which does exactly what it says.
Now, if a friend’s device running iOS 11 tries to join a Wi-Fi network that you’re connected to, your iOS device will get a simple pop-up asking if you’d like to share the network’s password. Tap “Send Password” and your friend’s device will automatically connect to the network. The only requirement is that both of you should have iOS 11 installed, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles turned on.
