How Can I See a WiFi Password that my Manager Put on my iPad?

I took my iPad to work today, my manage saw the iPad and asked me if I knew that our area had a secret WiFi network.

I had no clue. He took my iPad and connected to the hidden network and input the password too.

Both him & I were online w/ the iPad for at least half the day..

My question here is......how can I see what the password is on my iPad, so that w/ my iPod Touch I can connect it to that same hidden WiFi network?

I'm pretty sure my boss won't give me that info..the network is solely for when work laptops need internet, but no one uses WiFi at work cause there are ethernet cables everywhere...but the WiFi still exists (though hiddenly) at work.

There is no way to find out what the network password is. You can see what it's called by opening the Settings app and going to WiFi while connected to the network.

Well...if the situation was taking place w/ my MBP then i'd eaily be able to go and see it in the keychain access, considering it's my computer...

There has to be a way, there has ta!

simple solution.

Bring your MBP to work and get your manager to hook it up to the wifi. Then you'll have it in the keychain access.

done.

Yeah. A lot of companies have non-visible networks. My old company did. I had a friend in IT who hooked me up to the non-visible network and I was on the WiFi all the time on my iPhone. Lol.

There is not. At least not in that sort of way. Get over it

Did you even bother reading the rest of the thread before your pointless post?

Talking Answer guaranteed

I had a similar problem but what I did was visited 192.168.1.1
I gave "admin" as both username and password
Poked around a bit and voila, under the wireless tab, found the wep key
Lol
