We know that if we have to share WIFI network with nearby devices, we have to share it by sharing the password or by activating the WIFI hotspot. But with iOS 11, we can easily share WIFI password with the nearby devices. The best thing this feature is it is easy to perform. You don’t have to do anything or perform any method in order to share your password. You will just have to put your device near the iPhone which already has the network, and it will share the WIFI password. The whole process just takes a short period of time and is safe and secure in all terms. You can perform this method with your iPhone, iPad, and Mac to share your password.
