Do you want to share your WiFi details with your visitors and friends in a fancy way, showing them that you are tech-savvy? This may also save a lot of trouble from having to tell each and every one your long and hard-to-remember password again and again. Imagine this, your guests ask you for the WiFi connection, and you tell them to simply scan the QR code – isn’t it fantastic? Let’s get down to it then. In this article we’ll show you how to DIY your WiFi details into a QR code step by step.
How to Generate WiFi QR Code
1. List your WiFi network name and password.
This is crucial because you can’t do anything without these details. Usually you will have them noted in your notebook or kept in your cellphone/PC.
But sometimes, you don’t know the password because someone else set up the network for you. You should ask the people who did the settings work for the SSID and password. But if you forget the details and there is no way to get them back, check this page.
2. Generate WiFi QR code.
Visit a site that can generate QR code from your WiFi details. We’ll take https://qifi.org for example here.
On the webpage you open, enter the SSID and password of your WiFi network, select the encryption method(WPA/WPA2, WEP, or Non), and hit “Generate!” button. Now you get your WiFi QR code.
- Click “Export!” or right-click on the QR code to save it as a PNG image file. You can show your guests the image or send it to them so they can scan the code to get access to your WiFI hotspot.
- You can also click “Print!” to print the QR Code out with your printer and place it where your guests can easily see.
