“Yo, what’s your WiFi password?” It’s a question we’ve all asked, and answered, dozens of times. Happily, there appears to be a neat way around the issue, as an intrepid Reddit user recently made well-known: big QR codes. Generate a big QR code, frame it, and have your friends scan at their leisure to snag your digital network’s information. It beats shouting out that no, it’s in fact a capital k, lowercase c, and that the l is actually a 1. No, the second l. Wait, I’ll just type it in for you. WiFi is a ubiquitous quantity in any home worth visiting, and thus to lower the pain of getting onto a network would be a boon for all parties involved. Now, how to do the same thing yourself? Simply head to this website, input your WiFi details, and a code will be generated for you.
