1. Why can't I connect to my friend's wifi network?
There are a few reasons if you cannot connect to a friend's wifi network: first, you may need their permission before joining their network; second, if they have security enabled on their router, you may not be able to access it; and third, if someone else is already connected with permission from the owner of the router, then you will not be able to join either unless there is an open spot for one more device on that network.
2. How do I change my wifi password?
Changing your wifi password on your phone is simple: go to Settings > Wifi Password and enter your new password. You'll then be prompted to re-enter it again for verification purposes.
3. How do I keep my guests from knowing the password?
If you don't want your guests to know the password, you can change it every time they log into the guest account. To do this, just open up the router's settings page again and look for "Guest Access." Click on that, and scroll down until you see "Device Settings." Click on that, and then select "Change Device Passcode." You can now enter a new passcode as many times as you like!
There you have it! Now you know how to share your wifi password with your friends, family, and roommates.
If you want to ensure the connection is secure, double-check the password once more before handing it over. And remember: if you're going to share, you should also set up a limited access profile for yourself so that you don't inadvertently let others see your private information.
It's never been easier to get connected!
