InstaWifi enables you to connect and share wifi networks with your friends and family instantly through the use of NFC and QR codes. There is no faster way to connect to wifi than InstaWifi!
Have you ever been in a situation where your friends/family comes over and ask for your WiFi name and password? Do you have a long password that you keep on a piece of paper for people to type? There is no need for that anymore.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING before installing:
If you rooted your phone, InstaWifi will ask for root on startup so that it’ll automatically grab your WiFi password and security type so that you don’t have to manually type it in. Root access is not required.
DO NOT share the QR code to people you do not trust. The QR code has your wifi network password embedded in the image, and should only be used to share with family or friends.
Storage – External SD card access is used to save QR images onto the SD card so that GMail and other applications can retrieve the image and attach it to their app.
Network Communication – NFC permission is used to read/write from a NFC tag, as well as for Android Beam. Also to view WiFi networks to populate the list of WiFi networks you’ve connected to.
System Tools – To enable and disable WiFi.
InstaWifi user reviews:
Looks great, works great, comes from a great idea by a great dev.
Nice, simple little app that does exactly what it promises. Extra feature for rooted phones: automatically reads your connections already in your phone. QR codes share easily, even though Printer Share.
Works exactly as advertised. I now use it to connect to my home Wifi when I walk into the house, using an NFC tag I put on the side of the coat rack. When I go out, I tap the tag again and Wifi disconnects. Couldn’t be simpler!
I’ve followed this app through beta, and it’s worked like a charm even since the first release. It’s incredibly handy, especially if you’re too lazy to change the key on your router away from the default, usually hexidecimal one. A must-have for anyone who uses wifi… and that’s essentially everyone.
