While iOS 15 and older software versions would remember Wi-Fi passwords for all the wireless access points you successfully connected to, there was no obvious way to retrieve a network's unobfuscated password. Your iPhone would let you share a saved hotspot's password to another device attempting to connect to the network in question, but only with other Apple devices.
It's easy to find stored Wi-Fi passwords on your iPhone as long as you're running iOS 16.0 or later. When in the "Wi-Fi" menu in the Settings app, tap the info (i) button next to the Wi-Fi network you're currently on, and you'll see a new "Password" field under the "Auto-Join" toggle.
A tool in the "Utilities" applications folder on macOS called "Keychain Access" houses all of your stored Wi-Fi network credentials. If you have iCloud Keychain enabled for both your iPhone and Mac, networks and passwords should sync to iCloud. This applies to older iOS versions as well as the latest iOS 16.

Unfortunately, on the iPhone it is not possible to access this information. The passwords are kept on your phone in a safe place that is not accessible through any regular means on the phone. This is done for your protection, if you were to lose your iPhone and someone picked it up, the passwords that are stored on it would be up for grabs. This would lead to a lot of security problems.
I would recommend apps like 1password or the many other pieces of software out there that do the same thing to keep your passwords safe and backed up. I have way to many passwords to remember and it has been a life saver. 1Password even has the ability to back up your passwords to dropbox just in case something happens to your phone and you need to access it from somewhere else.
As gtm above me stated, there is a way to access your passwords but it is through jailbreaking. I do not recommend jailbreaking, that is something that you have to make the decision on for yourself. Jailbreaking is not for everyone.
Using the Keychain app is a great way to organize your passwords. With Keychain you can access all passwords (including Wi-Fi passwords) from your Mac. But the Jailbreak tweak WiFi Passwords from Cydia is the best one for viewing passwords directly on your iPhone.
Passwords are as annoying as they are necessary, and a good password manager can keep you secure while making it easier to juggle the sheer number of passwords you need to be a person on the internet. Using a password manager is one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself online, aside from using two-factor authentication and keeping your operating system and web browser up to date. If any of your passwords are weak and easy to guess, if you reuse any of your passwords across multiple sites, or if the sites you use are ever hacked and your account is compromised, you risk losing access to your accounts and your data. In fact, if you reuse passwords, chances are good that your password is already out there on an easy-to-find database. You can even check to see if your email address or password has been involved in a data breach.
An even more wretched thing is turning off password auto-fill. It's nearly impossible to remember passwords to every online account. Plus, your payment card information is stored in Safari's auto-fill feature. Still, it's a question of safety versus convenience. If you decide the former is more important, head to Settings > Safari > AutoFill. You can choose if you want to switch off auto-fill for your contact information, credit cards, or both.
hey my instagram says i need to enable access to my photos in order to post things and it seems like nothing is working ive tried deleting and re-installing the instagram app and its not working and i tried turning restrictions off and turning it back on so could anyone please help? thanks
Glad you asked! TextNow doesn't keep your messages or call logs on your device. Rather, your messages are attached to your TextNow account stored on our servers, so it's accessible from anywhere with an internet connection.
Since this post was published, we discovered additional logs ofInstagram passwords being stored in a readable format. We nowestimate that this issue impacted millions of Instagram users. Wewill be notifying these users as we did the others. Ourinvestigation has determined that these stored passwords were notinternally abused or improperly accessed. 2b1af7f3a8
