As others have mentioned you can use a website. I am really strict about security, even for a guest network, so I don't like the idea of using a website where they'll get my password.What utility can I use to create these QR codes that launch in the appropriate app?
I'd love to have a QR code in my house for the (guest) wifi password when friends come to visit. And I can think of a myriad other uses. But how do I create that?
QR Codes have never been native to the iOS before. That functionality always required a 3rd party app. So if an iOS user had a 3rd party code reader, they wouldn't be aware that iOS devices do this natively.Wait, let me make sure I have this straight. You have to open the Camera app and then point at the QR code? Who would have thunk it!
It isn’t just being posted:iOS 11 has been out for months. How is this just being posted? This was a big deal feature for iOS 11 and I have been using it happily since launch
Thanks for this. The linked (four-year-old) tutorial says it only works for Android. I guess that’s outdated info since it works on your iPhone.As others have mentioned you can use a website.

If you are comfortable with the command line you can use 'qrencode'. It is available on linux systems or on Mac through a package manager. I use MacPorts but it looks like Homebrew has it as well. Once the utility is installed generating a QR code is easy. It is a one line command. Just follow the directions in the link below (I output a PNG32 so I could paste it into Pages). I generated a QR code for my quest network and my iPhone was able to connect. It was really easy.
Not with the built-in camera as your QR reader, no. I've been using this app for some time, that keeps a record of all barcodes scanned:Is there any way to have a history of the scanned QR codes?
