But this only works for the situation that you haven’t changed the default password. In most cases, people have already used their own passcode; you can still perform a successful Wi-Fi password recovery with the following method.

From here, you can enter this code into your iPhone manually. We highly recommend you to save all your wireless passcodes in a note-taking app in case of forgetting any of them again. Hope this post can help!
