How to share Wi-Fi if you forgot the password for it on Android
Starting with Android version 10 and onwards, if you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network but don’t know the password, there’s an easy way to allow another device to connect to that network. You can generate a QR code on your phone, which another phone needs to scan and connect to the network without having to enter a password.
Check out our tutorial where we show you how to share Wi-Fi if you forgot your Android password.
