An open network with a splash page, where guests have to enter their details before gaining access, can have vulnerabilities and is inconvenient.
Sharing the WiFi network through a QR code provides a more secure and convenient method.
- Authenticity: A QR code can be generated by a trustworthy source, such as the network administrator, and can be directly scanned by guests without the need to input sensitive information.
- Limited access: The QR code can be generated with limited validity or usage rights.
- Simplified configuration: Sharing the WiFi network via a QR code provides a simpler configuration for both the administrator and the guests. Instead of having to input complex passwords, guests only need to scan the QR code to connect to the network.
