Step 3
If you need to share one of these passwords with another device, you have a few options. Start by tapping any entry in the list, then a small menu will pop up. From here, you can either tap “Copy password” to copy that network’s password to your clipboard, which would make it easy to paste into your favorite texting app and send to the other device. Or, you could skip a step and tap “Share,” then select your favorite texting app from the menu that appears to send the password.
