Hi LilliaJ,


I understand that you're seeing a password error when trying to connect to the Personal Hotspot on your iPhone. Fortunately, the steps outlined below should help resolve this and help get your iPad to successfully connect to your Personal Hotspot.

If you can't connect to Personal Hotspot with Wi-Fi

On the device that you want to connect to, go to Settings > Personal Hotspot and make sure that it's on. Then verify the Wi-Fi password and name of the phone. Stay on this screen until you’ve connected your other device to the Wi-Fi network. Then on the device that needs to connect to Personal Hotspot, follow these steps:

  1. Check that you're using the correct Wi-Fi network. The network name should be the same as the iOS device providing Personal Hotspot. You can check the name of your iOS device in Settings > General > About.
  2. If you see a password error when you try to join Personal Hotspot, check the Wi-Fi password: On the device that provides Personal Hotspot, go to Settings > Personal Hotspot to see the Wi-Fi password.
  3. Check how many devices are using Personal Hotspot by looking in the status bar of the device that provides Personal Hotspot. Some wireless carriers limit the number of connections you can have.
  4. On the device that needs to connect to Personal Hotspot, turn Wi-Fi off and back on.
