iPhones and Androids may as well be apples and oranges when it comes to compatibility, but sharing WiFi information between the two devices isn't impossible.

Just make sure you're using a secure connection. (We recommend having a VPN on your iPhone for added security, but it's not totally necessary.) If you have an iPhone, you will need a third-party app to share a Wi-Fi password with an Android device. These QR code generating apps have options built in to automatically make a QR code of your Wi-Fi information. There are more available on the iPhone app store.

You can manually exchange Wi-Fi information as well. If you aren't sure what the wireless password is, check out our guide on how to find an unknown Wi-Fi password.

Note: The receiving Android device will need to install a QR code reading app.

The Android recipient will need a QR reader, as well. Here are few popular options from the Google Play Store to get you started:
