How to use Galaxy Note10+ QR code to connect to wifi

Are you aware that you can connect to your home wifi network faster with QR code on your Galaxy Note10+? With QR codes becoming almost ordinary today,  it’s no wonder that it also found its way into Samsung Galaxy devices in helping users do things quicker. In this tutorial, we’ll show you the easy steps on how to pull up a QR code on the Note10+ to help you connect to your wifi without adding a password. This makes it not only less of a hassle but also provides a bit security by not giving the actual password to another person.

Keep in mind that only Samsung Galaxy devices that runs Android Pie (9.0) OS such as the Galaxy S10 / Note10, S9 / Note9, S8 / Note8 support this function. If you are trying to connect a second device to your Note10 Mobile Hotspot and it doesn’t work, that’s probably because its OS is not up to date.

How to use Galaxy Note10+ QR scanner to connect to wifi

To connect to wifi with a QR code on a Galaxy Note10+, you must first make sure that the device’s wifi connection is working. You can do that by either pulling down Quick settings panel from the top of the screen and tapping on the wifi icon, or by going under Settings > Connections > Wifi > connect to a wifi network.

Once you’ve verified that wifi is on and working, you can then open the QR code so a second device can scan it to connect to the wifi network. Here’s what you must do:

  1. Open Settings app.
  2. Tap Connections.
  3. Tap Wifi.
  4. Tap the cog or gear icon.
  5. You should see the QR code at the top.
  6. On your second phone, scan the QR code image with your QR scanner or camera.
  7. That’s it! Your second device should now be able to connect to your wifi without needing to enter a password.
