How to set your QR code for your WiFi password
Setting up the custom QR code is quite a quick and easy process. And when you’re done, you can print it out and keep a copy under your coffee table book or stick it on your fridge so people can scan it whenever they want without bothering you.
To get started, visit a website such as qifi.org. Next, you need to make sure you have your Wi-Fi information ready so you can type it. If you were not the person who set up your home network and you are unsure of these details, check the bottom or back of your router for this information, or contact your ISP.
Once you have them, select your encryption type from the drop-down menu, which should include options like “WEP”, “WPA / WPA2” or None. Then enter your Wi-Fi network name in the SSID field and the corresponding password in the Key field. When you are done, click “Generate!” and your QR code should appear at the bottom of the page.
From there you can save, export or print it on your computer. Put it somewhere that is easily accessible to those you trust, but not visible to anyone you don’t want to access your Wi-Fi network.
Both Android devices and iOS users can scan the QR code with the phone’s camera app. Or you can download a third party QR scanning app like NeoReader QR & Barcode Scanner for iOS and Android instead. After the code has been scanned, the device should automatically connect to the network.
