Personalize QR codes for your Wi-Fi network, and a selection of speakers and soundbars to amplify the music
We have all experienced that moment when guests attending a party want to connect to the Wi-Fi. Repeating your Wi-Fi network’s name—and password—multiple times can be tiresome. QR codes can simplify the process.
Creating a QR code for your Wi-Fi network is simple using online Wi-Fi QR code generators. There are numerous websites that allow you to generate such codes, including platforms like Wix and QRCode Monkey—these tools are free to use and also provide options to customize the QR codes in various ways.

Once you have selected a website, you will need to enter your wireless SSID (service set identifier, a technical term for your network name), password, and choose an encryption level, such as WPA/WPA 2. After entering these details, you can generate and download the QR code. You can print this QR code and utilize it for your party or save it in your phone gallery. You no longer have to repeatedly provide the password to everyone. It’s simple!
To scan the QR code, you can use the built-in scanner in your camera app (which is available on most new smartphones) or use third-party apps like Google Lens. Most phones also enable you to share Wi-Fi details directly from the device.
