What network is it? What’s the password and how do you spell that? Can we avoid this trouble in Android 10?
If you’re like us, you’ve answered the questions many, many times from visitors to your home or work. For this particular case, you likely have the answers memorized, or perhaps you have them written on a card. There’s another, simpler way to share the relevant information with someone with Android 10, and it doesn’t allow you to recall any specifics or spell out a password. Google has introduced a shortcut to create a QR code that can be viewed with a tap on your phone screen. Visitors can then search the code for instant connection to your network on their phone.
Steps To Share WiFi Settings
While you need a phone running Android 10 or later to produce QR code, the benefit of this feature is that any phone either running an older version of Android or an iPhone — will scan QR code and access the network.
For this reference, If you have an Android 10 mobile and you want to test it, here’s how you do it:
- Click the Wi-Fi button for a long time or click Settings > Network and Web > Wi-Fi.
- Tap the network for which you want to share details, most likely the one you are currently connected to at the top.
- Tap the Sharing button that has an icon of QR code.
- You may need to verify that you are using a face or fingerprint scan or a PIN or template, so your mobile should be dipped.
To do this, you don’t actually need Android 10; for example, our Samsung Galaxy S10 running Android 9.0 Pie has a similar feature. Only pull down the alert cover, click the Wi-Fi button for a long time, and tap the network you want to connect and see a QR code at the top of the page.
