Welcome to TNW Basics, a resource for easy-to-follow instructions on making the most of your devices, apps, and other items.
The iOS shortcuts app is a really helpful tool for automating your iPhone or iPad. We looked at utilizing the app to make a straightforward RSS reader last week. But Shortcuts excels at more than that. Sharing your Wi-Fi password as a QR code is another practical shortcut. Here is how to go about it.
Disclaimer: The images below represent the iOS 13 Beta 2 Shortcuts app. However, the measures you must take are the same.
Step 1: If you haven’t already, go to the App Store and download the Shortcuts app.
Step 2: Open the app and click “+” at the top of the My Shortcuts (Library in iOS 12) page to add a new shortcut.
Step 3: Tap “Settings” and give the shortcut a name, like “Share Wi-Fi.” You can also tap the “Icon” to replace it with an object that better serves the purpose of your shortcut.
Step 4: The initial action is to obtain the network information. Add the “Get Network Details” action to accomplish this. Since it’s Wi-Fi, you must choose “Wi-Fi” for the “Network” option and “Network Name” for the “Get” box.

Step 5: After that, you must enter the relevant password. There are several ways to accomplish this. The Wi-Fi password could be written down in text form. To accomplish this, add a “Text” action, followed by the password.
Alternatively, you may modify the shortcut so that each time you launch it, it asks you for the password. You can accomplish this by adding a “Ask for Input” action. You can enter the question, for instance, “Enter the Wi-Fi password,” in the “Ask” section.
Step 6: You must construct a new string with the following structure in order to build a QR code for a Wi-Fi network: Wi-Fi:T:WPA;S:Your WiFi network name; P: Your WiFi network password;;
The letters “T” and “S” represent the authentication type (WPA or WEP), “P” for the password, and “P” for the network name. It doesn’t matter what order the fields are in.
The Wi-Fi network name and password, however, are already known to us thanks to steps #4 and #5, so all that is left to do is enter them by choosing the options for “Network Details” and “Ask for Input” from the alternatives mentioned below.

Step 7: After creating the string, use the “Generate QR Code” action to produce the QR code. Additionally, you have the choice of setting the “Error Correction” option to Low, Medium, Quartile, or High, which will allow you to fine-tune the ability to recover data in the event that the code is compromised.
Add a “Quick Look” action after that to preview the result in step #8. You may view the generated QR code by doing this.
The shortcut is finished after step nine. Now click the “Play” button to launch the shortcut. It is situated on top of iOS 12.
