If you don’t know how to create a QR code to share a WiFi password, we are going to help you out in this guide. If you have a restaurant and clients are asking you for the WiFi password continuously, you can solve this problem easily. You can use this method in your home too.
For this tutorial, we are going to use a tool called QiFi, which will allow us to create a QR code for our WiFi network for free. In less than five minutes you will have your QR code created, it’ll be ready to share.
How to create a QR code to share a WiFi password?
The first thing we have to do is to enter the QiFi website. Once we enter this page, we only have to fill in the data. The first field is for the SSID, the name of your WiFi, the one that appears when you look for a router to connect.
Now, you will have to fill in the Encryption section. This is the type of encryption used by your WiFi network. Usually, it’s WPA/WPA2, but you can always check the WiFi settings from your phone to verify it. Finally, you will be asked for the key: the password of our WiFi network.
Once you are finished entering your information, you can click on ‘Generate’, which will automatically generate the QR code. Once we have created it, we can export it, an option that will allow us to save this QR in PNG format, that is, in an image without quality loss. We will only have to share this key with our friends so they can connect to the WiFi.
How to scan QR code with your phone?
In order to scan this QR code, if you have a new smartphone, you probably don’t need to install any third-party applications. In the case of the iPhone, all have a QR code reader integrated into the camera, so you just have to open the camera and scan the QR code. In the case of Android, if your smartphone has an integrated scanner you can use it or you can look for third-party solutions by typing “QR code scanner” to Google Play.
Once you have read the QR code, your phone will open directly the WiFi section and you will be able to access the internet. With this method, you can share the WiFi in a matter of seconds by sending a picture to your guests.
