How is a WiFi QR Code generator helpful?

Until now, the only way to join a WiFi network was to select one from a list of available connections and enter the password manually. But QRCodeChimp has made it possible to scan a QR code for WiFi with your smartphone camera. What's more? Our WiFi QR Code is free to generate, use, and never expires. It makes sharing WiFi credentials with friends, clients, and visitors a breeze.

Can I create a WiFi QR Code for a hidden network?

Yes. All you need is to select the 'hidden' checkbox next to the network name field in WiFi QR Generator. You can also make an open network hidden by activating the hidden option on your mobile device or modern routers.

What do I need to secure my WiFi?

WPA/WPA2 is the safest option and the default setting for most WiFi access points. You can select this option if you are unsure about what else to do. 'None' indicates that your WiFi is not secure and open for everyone to use.

How do I join a WiFi QR Code?

You can test a new code or join one by launching the camera app on your smartphone and focusing it on the WiFi QR Code. A notification will pop up to connect to the wireless network. Check your settings and ensure that the QR Code scanning feature is active if it doesn't. You can download a third-party QR Code scanner from the app store if it still does not scan.

How do I generate a QR Code for WiFi?

Select the WiFi QR code tab from the QR code menu.

Enter your WiFi network's name in the network field. Please ensure that it is the same as your router name. Check the "Hidden" checkbox If the network is hidden. Enter the case-sensitive WiFi password and select the security protocol for your network.

Add a frame, colors, shape to the QR Code to make it unique.

Save your WiFi QR code. You may download your custom QR Code.

What are the benefits of using a QR Code for WiFi?

Social visitors

When friends and family members visit, it always takes more than one attempt to have them join your WiFi. There can be typing errors or sometimes just hesitation to let your secret credentials out. Have a party, and a couple of friends wish to join your WiFi to play music from their phones? We're sure you do not want to scream your WiFi details. Guests can join your WiFi by simply scanning the code in one go.

Hospitality Industry

How most guests in a hotel or homestay always end up calling the front desk more than once to join the WiFi network! Sounds familiar? Hospitality is all about convenience and delightful experiences, and having your guests scan a QR Code for WiFi in seconds can improve their stay and perhaps your ratings!

Food & Beverage Industry

Several cafes sell more coffee simply because the customer wants to sit there and use the WiFi. Restaurants and cafes can use each material or communication exchanged with the customers more fruitful by placing WiFi QR codes on cash counters, table tents, menu cards, or bills.

Public service offices

A smooth internet connection is still a luxury in government offices. The queues are long, and people are often frustrated to wait for that long to get their work done, which may take more than one visit. Public department officers can undoubtedly try to soften the blow by allowing access to their WiFi QR Code so people can get some relief by running digital errands or indulging in some entertainment.

Healthcare Sector

Clinics and hospitals are not the happiest places. They run high on stress and are often understaffed. To facilitate the patients waiting for their turn in common areas instead of bothering the staff for little things, QR Codes for WiFi placed in waiting rooms can keep everyone at ease.

Public places and tourist attractions

The local governance in urban areas has been talking about wifi-enabled public infrastructure, but it's not accessible as it should be. When the investment comes from the taxpayer's money and social distancing is the new normal, WiFi QR codes at tourism offices, public parks, benches, community centers, and lamp posts can entertain the walkers and help travelers immensely.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I create a WiFi QR code for a hidden network?

How can users use a WiFi QR code to connect to a network?

When users scan a WiFi QR code, the Network Name, Password, and Network Type gets displayed on their screen. They also get a 'Join Network' button, which they can click to connect to the network without manually entering the username and password.

Is it safe to share a WiFi QR code with users?

Sharing a WiFi QR code with users is similar to disclosing the WiFi's SSID and password. If you have an open WiFi network and want to give your users free WiFi, a Wi-Fi QR code is perfect for you. However, if you want to share WiFi credentials with a few selected people (like employees), place the WiFi QR code in a secure location. Alternatively, you can skip encoding the password in the WiFi QR code, and users will need to know the password to connect to the network.
