WiFi Name Hidden

I hide my wifi name and want to unhide. How do I do it?

WiFi Name Hidden
You’ve hidden your WiFi name, and it will no longer appear in the list of available networks.

You’ve hidden your WiFi name, and it will no longer appear in the list of available networks.

You probably did that with your smartphone.

Connect to a hidden Wi-Fi network
  1. Go to Settings > Wi-Fi, and make sure Wi-Fi is turned on. Then tap Other.
  2. Enter the exact name of the network, then tap Security.
  3. Choose the security type. ...
  4. Tap Other Network to return to the previous screen.
  5. Enter the network password in the Password field, then tap Join.
