Excerpt of article text...

You know the situation: a good friend or customer wants to log into your Wifi network. So you look for the piece of paper with the long password and it takes a while to painstakingly enter the complex password manually. How nice would it be to shorten the procedure and avoid input errors?

Wifi QR codes are a great solution for this. You create the code once and it can be scanned with a cell phone by anyone you want to let into your network. In this article, I want to show you how to create such a Wifi QR code with Xojo with the help of the MBS Xojo plugins without much effort.

How is such a WiFi QR code actually structured?

To find out, we can either scan an already known WiFi QR code and look at the structure, or we can ask Google for advice. The information we need to create the QR code is the SSID, which is the network name, the password, the type of encryption, and the information whether our network is visible to others or not. For our example, we will use the fictitious network with the following information

SSID: MyNetwork

Password: 12345678
