If you have an Android phone which is already connected to a WiFi, then you can easily share the WiFi password to another Android phone with the help of the QR code.
To share the WiFi password, do the following:
1) Long press on the WiFi icon from the notification drawer
This will take you to the WiFi which is already connected. If the WiFi is not enabled on the phone yet, then enable it. And the phone will connect to the WiFi. Depending on the phone model, you will have different options to share the WiFi password. On Mi / Redmi Phones, you will see “Tap to share password”. On Samsung Android Phones, you can tap on the WiFi setting icon. You will then see a QR icon at the bottom of the screen.
When you tap on the QR icon, you will get a QR code.
You can scan this QR from the other Android phone which you want to get it connected to WiFi.
2) On the other Android Phone, long press on the WiFi icon
This will take you to the WiFi connections screen. You should be able to see a scanner somewhere in the page.
- Tap on the scanner.
- Scan the QR code displayed on the other phone.
- After the scan is successful, the Android phone should now be able to connect to the WiFi.
In case, the Android phone does not have a QR code scanner in the WiFi connections screen, then you can also try using Google Lens app to scan the WiFi QR Code to connect to the WiFi.
