How to share your home Wi-Fi without a password in iOS 11 | Cult of Mac
iOS 11 brings yet another convenient feature — password-free Wi-Fi sharing. It works like this: If a friend or other visitor needs to use your Wi-Fi, then instead of digging in the dust and yanking on the already-taut cables of your router to read the password label on the back, you can just hold your iPhones close to each other, and grant the guest access to your network. It’s super easy, and requires nothing more than that you both be running iOS 11, and have Bluetooth switched on.

How to Share Your Wi-Fi Without Password in iOS 11
One of the coolest features in iOS 11 has to be the ability to share your Wi-Fi password with other iOS 11 users. No more having to remember where you wrote your Wi-Fi password down and no more having to read out a long string of letters and numbers.
There are some requirements in order for this feature to work:
iOS devices have to be running iOS 11 and have Bluetooth turned on.
You have to be in each other’s contacts.
Home owners can also use their Macs to share their Wi-Fi connection, but must be running MacOS Sierra for it to work.
If you meet the requirements, you can share your Wi-Fi password with other devices nearby without revealing the password.

How to easily share WiFi password on iPhone, iPad with iOS 11 - Business Insider
WiFi passwords are a pain. They're hard to remember and are often too long or complex to easily tell someone.
Luckily, Apple has finally made a way to easily share your WiFi password with someone in iOS 11, the next major software update released for the iPhone and iPad on Tuesday.
Here's how it works: When someone needs the password to a network you've already logged into, you'll be able to hold your Apple device near theirs and instantly transfer the password to them — no copy and pasting required!

iOS 11 Makes Sharing Your Wi-Fi Password Much Easier
iOS: Having an elaborate, secure password on your Wi-Fi network can be a great thing. A great thing until that weekend you have guests visiting from out of town and they have to try your 20-character Wi-Fi password a dozen different times because a zero looks like an O or they couldn’t tell from your chicken scratch which letters are capitalized and which aren’t.
With iOS 11, sharing that password just got much easier. That is, if you and all your friends happen to be using iOS devices running iOS 11 or computers running macOS High Sierra. You’ll also need to have their contact info saved in your device’s address book.
