You know the drill—a friend comes to visit and wants to get on your Wi-Fi network. You’ve written the password down somewhere but where? Even if you have it handy it’s a pain for your friend to type in. Since macOS 10.13 High Sierra and iOS 11, Apple’s operating systems can make connecting a lot easier. Have your guest choose your network and then put their device next to one of your devices that’s awake and connected to the Wi-Fi network. As long as you have a card in your Contacts app whose name matches your friend’s My Card in their Contacts, your device should ask if you want to share the Wi-Fi password with them. Just tap Share Password when prompted and you’re done!
But what if you want to give them the password for your Guest network? I guess you still have to use the old way?
fc.smayer97 depends on how your Guest Network is setup. If you have the ability to connect to both your main and Guest network then this method can still work.
