I have tried it on a couple of online QR Code generators, which are QR Zilla and ZXing. But you can anyways use any of the QR Code generator (provided, it lets you create a QR Code for WiFi connection).

  • Use any of the QR Code generator and get going with the creation of a QR Code. Do mention all the details that are required
  • It would include details like network name, password, SSID, encoding type etc.
  • Once done filing the details, just click on the Generate button to get the code

Now who ever asks for your Internet connection, just ask them to scan that particular QR Code and voila! That device would be connected to your WiFi network now.

I guess you got a fix for your worry. You were able to share the WiFi and at the same time, you were successful in your misson of not sharing the password too.
