I have saved the wifi password for our network on an iPhone 5c. In the meantime the wifi username and password has changed.

So what I had tried so far:

  1. Go to Settings -> Wifi
  2. Choose the wifi network's "i" icon
  3. Choose "Forget This Network"
  4. Choose "Forget"
  5. Back to the wifi settings
  6. Select the wifi network's "i" icon again
  7. Select "Join Network"
  8. Safari opens and ask for a user name and password
  9. Enter the user name and password
  10. Choose Done

Next time when I join the network again, on my on-screen keyboard, I go to "Passwords".

The only options I see is the OLD username and password so that the new one that I just had entered is missing.

How can I replace the OLD wifi username and password so that I do not have to enter it manually again?

  • Do you have 'Ask to Join Networks' setting turned ON? If you turn it OFF then known networks will be joined automatically and if you have wrong password, then it will ask for correct one and save it. Commented Oct 19, 2016 at 11:03
  • @ranklord I see an "Auto-Join" and a "Auto-Login" option. Which one are referring to? I'm on iOS 9.3.5 Commented Oct 19, 2016 at 12:12

  • @ranklord Thanks, but my old password still shows instead of the new one. Commented Oct 19, 2016 at 12:35
  • It seems like "Forget this network" only forget the network, not the password. Commented Oct 19, 2016 at 12:38

Go to Settings -> Safari -> General, Authorise yourself and try to update your password there.
