There you go. Now you know how to easily share your Wi-Fi passwords with non-Apple users too.

We had to make changes to this shortcut since it wasn’t working upon installation. While the shortcut finished performing the operation successfully, the QR code never showed up on the screen even though a message popped up stating “The QR code is presented below”. This is exactly why we removed the last action that displayed the false message and replaced it with the Quick Look action instead.

Of course, we could’ve gone with a different shortcut to make it easier for you, but all of them are third-party shortcuts that require you to set your device to allow the installation of untrusted shortcuts, which several users may not be okay with. But, if you live life on the edge, you can install this third-party shortcut called Share Wi-Fi to generate a QR code that your guests can scan.

If this is your first time installing a shortcut on your iPhone or iPad, we’d like to inform you that you have access to hundreds of other shortcuts that can unlock some useful features too. For instance, there’s a similar shortcut called iCode QR that converts basically anything into a QR code that your friends can scan. There’s a shortcut that can be used to convert videos to GIFs too. Or, if you want to find how long it’ll take to fully charge your iPhone, there’s a shortcut for that as well.
