There are a lot of different ways that your iPad tries to make things easier for you, but one way that permeates an assortment of apps is the remembering of passwords. You have probably noticed that you only need to enter the password for a Wi-Fi network once, then the iPad will automatically connect to it the next time it is in range. But if you accidentally connect to the wrong network, or you have changed the password for a network, this can be a problem. Fortunately there is a simple way to forget the previous network password and enter a new one.
Forget a Network on the iPad to Change a Wi-Fi Password
Perhaps the best use of this procedure is to update a password for a wireless network. Since there isn’t an option to change a password on a Wi-Fi network, you actually need to forget the password that is stored on the iPad for that network so that you can enter the new one. So continue below to learn how.
Step 1: Tap the Settings icon.
Step 2: Select the Wi-Fi option at the top of the column on the left side of the screen.
Step 3: Tap the blue arrow to the right of the network that you want to forget.
Step 4: Touch the Forget this Network button at the top of the screen.
