We’ve been told that to keep our Wi-Fi safe we need to use either WPA or WPA2 with strong key phrase to secure our Wi-Fi access. But there is a problem when using a complex key phrase like this:
/1zSuJQlW1dfeLYpOsTOS2y0ase5s$fr$T0lmaM8a!m4BAsZ$ByKDlUnT,sAzM$How am I supposed to type into my iPhone to connect to my Wi-Fi? or how can I share this gibberish with my friends when they visit us but need access to Internet?
This has been bothering me. Is there an easy way?
- Go to this website, click WiFi button, put in all your Wi-Fi detail, and hit Generate button. And here you go, you will have a customized QR code containing all your Wi-Fi info in it within a second.
- Now, print off the QR code and share it whenever you need to.
- For iPhone friends, they can easily use an QR scan app like QRReader to scan the code and copy the SSID and Key to their Wi-Fi setting so they can connect their iPhone to your Wi-Fi without typing in a single code.
- For Microsoft Surface or Windows 8 Tablet users, Scan – QR Code seems to be an OK one to scan and get the code. It’s not as sleek as QRRead on iPhone but does get the job done. It’s a free native Windows 8 App so you can download and install it on your tablet. Just search for the name in Windows Store and you should be able to find it.
