Find a QR code for your Wi-Fi so friends and family can easily connect to your network.

1Password automatically generates a QR code for Wireless Router items. Anyone can use the camera on their device to scan this QR code and connect to your Wi-Fi network.

In order for 1Password to generate a QR code, you must have the following fields filled out in your 1Password Wireless Router item:

  • Network password
