    Do you have a backup in iTunes from before the reset?

    ----------

    Oh, from your post apparently not. Do you have an icloud backup?

    Reset. Usually that means you won't get it back. I suggest that you make a backup before doing that again.

    Why does someone need to make a back-up of their WiFi passwords, I mean, do you have hundreds? I probably have three and at worst it's an extremely minor inconvenience to re-input them.

    Some of us have to deal with more than just Wifi passwords, but have to go through a whole authentication process and install a WPA Enterprise certificate, for things like corporate networks. even college campuses are doing this now.

    Having to repeat the process can take a while. So yeah, backups are helpful.

    I don't think iCloud back up backs up passwords - I think only the encrypted iTunes backup does. At least according to text in iTunes - that is what it says.

    Hmm. I kind of remember that now. I think that's why I try to iTunes backup once in a while. I wonder why icloud won't do it?

    iCloud does back-up WiFi passwords and proxy info.

    My best guess is that they were afraid if icloud ever got hacked, not only would people's icloud accounts be exposed, but everything else that they have password to, as well.

    But then, that theory kinda goes out the window when you consider iCloud Keychain.

    You have to use iCloud Keychain for that I think.
