These past few days I’ve had a lot of time at home, which is wonderful. I’ve had time to get so much done! Moving furniture, cleaning, getting ready for guests. I only just realized that since the last time most of our friends visited, we had to get a new wireless router and it came with new passwords. So I went hunting for an easy way to share the password information with our guests and I found the idea for creating a QR code to scan that would display the password information. The idea was just too good to not share!

It’s really simple! Here are the steps:

  • First, write down your SSID (the name of your network) and your network password
  • Go to http://zxing.appspot.com/generator/ Its the generator I used.
  • Select Wifi network from the contents drop down box
  • Enter the SSID and Password information in the appropriate fields
  • Click Generate
  • It will generate a code for you just like this:

The website will give you the option to save or embed it. I saved mine and used Illustrator and Photoshop to create and print the picture in the first image and put it in a frame in my foyer.  All your guests need is a regular qr scanner reader app to scan the code and your wifi password will pop up! I recommend this QR code reader and scanner app. It’s a simple app and it works fast and displays the information in a clean look like this:

(Yes, that is my actual password and no, I didn’t come up with it.)

Like I said, it’s surprisingly simple. How do you manage the “what’s your wireless password!?” chaos at your house?
