A QR Code Could Be your New Wi-Fi Password

A QR Code Could Be your New Wi-Fi Password

There is no understating the importance of strong, reliable passwords to your organization’s network security, especially to protect its wireless connection. However, this can create some friction with your staff when they try to connect to Wi-Fi using their mobile device. To make accessing the Internet easier, scannable QR codes can be used to connect to the Internet.

Why QR Codes?
There is one major security benefit to using a QR code over an alphanumeric password, in that an alphanumeric password can be spread through word of mouth. Comparatively, because the password is encoded in the QR code, using a QR code allows you to share your Internet access without sharing your credentials.

Furthermore, using a QR code is simpler on the part of the user. Rather than poking away at a touchscreen to input a password in the hopes that it is correct, the right app makes signing on to the Internet as easy as taking a photograph. In this way, a QR code is the ideal way for a business that sees a lot of traffic to permit their guests to utilize the Internet.

How to Use a QR Code
In order to use a QR code to provide Internet access, you’ll need to have a code generated. There are various websites and web applications that will generate a printable QR code if given the name of the network you want to connect to, and its password. You will want to review their terms of service and other policies to ensure that you are comfortable with providing this information.

Then all you have to do is input the necessary information and download the result. When you’re finished, you’ll have an easy means of allowing Internet access without the hassle or security risk of sharing the access password.
