Hasn’t each one of us crossed this situation at least once, wherein we were required to share our Wi-Fi passwords with our friends, family members, or guests at home? Now, most of us are guilty of keeping quirky passwords for our network connections, right? So either you awkwardly ask the next person to pass over their device so you can fill in the password directly (you know, to save yourself from the embarrassment of course), or dare to say it out loud and raise a few chuckles. But what if we told you that this hassle can be avoided altogether? Yes, a device can connect with a Wi-Fi network today by simply scanning its QR code. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to share Wi-Fi passwords using QR codes on Android and iPhone devices.
