Top 10 Ways to Fix Wi-Fi Login Page Not Showing on iPhone

Public Wi-Fi networks are becoming widely available. They can be seen in public spaces such as cafes, hotels, and airports. Although the majority of public Wi-Fi networks are free to use, you must first log in using your credentials. When staying at a hotel, you can be asked for your name, email address, or room number. To use it, you’ll need to enter some of that information on the hotel’s or a public Wi-Fi network’s login page.

On occasion, though, your iPhone might not display the login page. Therefore, you cannot access the Wi-Fi network. Fortunately, you can quickly rectify that and connect to the free Wi-Fi network. The greatest solutions to your iPhone’s Wi-Fi login screen not appearing are listed below.

1. FORGET THE NETWORK AND RECONNECT TO IT

Sometimes, the solution to problems like these is simpler than you would imagine. If your iPhone is connected to a Wi-Fi network and the login page doesn’t show up, try forgetting the network so you can reconnect. Here’s how to do that.

Step 1: Open the Settings app on your iPhone.

Step 4: Choose the Forget This Network option at the top.

This will disconnect your phone from the Wi-Fi network. After that, wait for a few seconds and tap on the Wi-Fi network again to connect.

2. DISABLE AUTO-JOIN FOR THE WI-FI NETWORK

If your iPhone automatically connects to a Wi-Fi network you’ve already used, the login page may not load. So, disable the Auto-Join toggle to ensure you manually connect to the network and trigger the login page.

Connect to the Wi-Fi network manually and see if the login page shows up.

3. ENSURE YOU’RE WITHIN THE RANGE OF THE WI-FI NETWORK

Sometimes, weak Wi-Fi signal strength can cause the login page to not load since your connection to the network is probably unstable. So, ensure you’re within the Wi-Fi range for the best connectivity. If you’re in a hotel, you should ideally get the best network inside your room. If you’re in the lobby and the login page doesn’t show up, you might be out of network range.

Typically, a 5GHz frequency band on a Wi-Fi network has a smaller coverage area. So if you use the 5GHz band, come close to the router. Alternatively, you can also try joining a 2.4GHz network if it’s available.

4. FORCE RESTART THE IPHONE

Sometimes, a simple force restart can fix many issues, whether the hardware or the software on your iPhone. Try force restarting your iPhone to see if the login page shows up when you connect to a network.

For iPhone 6s or lower:

Step 1: Open the Settings app on your iPhone.

7. DISABLE VPN

Several times, a VPN may interfere with the smooth functioning of internet activities on your iPhone. Since a VPN changes your location, the Wi-Fi network may not show you the login page. If you’re using a VPN on your iPhone, turn it off before trying to connect to the Wi-Fi network.

Step 1: Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
