Share Your WiFi Password In Seconds With Android QR Codes

When people come to your house, they're bound to ask you to connect to their Wi-Fi network, right? And then you need to provide your (hopefully slightly complicated) password.

Many people today have cheap or unlimited mobile data on their phones, so the need for home network access may be reduced, but it remains. If you have an Android phone, you can easily manage Wi-Fi password sharing. However, you must log in to the appropriate network yourself. If you have a separate guest network, which many modern routers support and provides extra security, you'll need to log in before performing these steps.

Depending on the version of Android and your phone, you may find different ways to share over Wi-Fi than what we show here, and possibly even more options. (For example, Samsung has its own spin-off version.) But it's the classic QR code that always works, even if your guest is on an iPhone. And everyone knows how to use QR codes.
