Have you ever wanted to share your home or work Wi-Fi with your guests without giving away the network password? You’re certainly not alone in this regard, but we’re pleased to inform you that you can now do just that using your iPhone or iPad, thanks to this neat workaround.

Typically, you’ll need to share your Wi-Fi password if you want someone else to access the network. Apple sort of resolved this issue by introducing the ability to share Wi-Fi passwords with other iOS and macOS deviceswith any modern version of iOS and iPadOS. But, this feature cannot be used to share your Wi-Fi passwords with non-Apple devices. In such instances, you’ll need to rely on an iOS or ipadOS shortcut that basically converts your Wi-Fi password into a QR code that you can share with literally anyone, whether they’re on an iPhone, iPad, Android, Mac, Windows PC, Linux machine, or Chromebook.
