Remembering the password to your home’s WiFi network is not as easy since you’re not used to entering it on your devices regularly. Once you pair your device to a WiFi network, it remembers the password and automatically pairs with the WiFi whenever it is in proximity. You won’t be prompted to enter the password again unless it is changed. While this works fine for the most part, you can easily forget the password and have a hard time remembering it when a guest at your house asks for it. Luckily, your Android device connected to the WiFi network remembers the password and can easily share it when required. In this article, we bring you the two simplest ways you can share your saved WiFi network and password from your Android device.
