How to Share Your Wi-Fi Network with Friends, No Password Typing Required.

If your friend wants to get on your Wi-Fi, you don't have to share your (possibly long and confusing) password. Here's how to generate a QR code containing your network password and have them log on in one snap.

If using an iPhone you must copy the password in to iPhone Wi-Fi setting


 

There are a lot of sites out there that let you create QR codes for Wi-Fi passwords, but we like QRStuff's code generator and ZXing Project's QR Code Generator (ZXing are the developers of Barcode Scanner).

Share Wi-Fi Code with QR Barcode
 

Once you click the Generate button, you'll get a QR code you can save and print out if you like. Your friend will need to have a barcode scanner on their phone, preferably the free Barcode Scanner app on Android (which many of you probably already have). To connect to your network, all he/she has to do is scan the QR code. It'll instantly connect them.
