Feature request: QR code for WiFi setup

Hi,
it's not a new feature request, but all previous discussions are already closed:

https://1password.community/discussion/82070/feature-request-wifi-qr-code-display
https://1password.community/discussion/117784/feature-request-generate-qr-code-image-for-wifi
https://1password.community/discussion/107880/suggestion-wifi-qr-code-in-wireless-router-item

I think the request is still valid and would be useful.
I know that there are workarounds, but they are not safe (paste WiFi credentials to some 3rd party website to generate qr code) or too laborious.
In fact the absence of QR code for WiFi motivate people to use simple and short passwords, because they can be easily typed manually to guests devices. It goes against the basic idea of your service - to make it easier for people to use secure passwords.

I hope we will see this feature in the application soon.

    Hey there @encacz

    I'll add a +1 to that feature request for you. I use Android's built-in ability to generate QR codes for Wi-Fi passwords quite a bit and I can see how that would be helpful when applied to 1Password.

    If you haven't already tried it, you can also Securely share 1Password items with anyone, even if they're not using 1Password. That generates a link (valid one time, or for a time window you specify, up to 7 days) that you can send to someone. If you want, you can limit the link to only be useable by the email address(es) you choose. This works with any of your 1Password items, not just Wi-Fi passwords. Give it a go some time and let me know how you find it. :)

    Hi @GreyM1P
    thanks for the reaction.

    I know the "share 1Password item" feature and I use it in some cases.
    But if somebody visit me and I want to give him access to internet via WiFi, then it does not help to share with him the WiFi credentials via this feature. He need to connect to WiFi to be able to get these shared WiFi credentials. We are in the loop.

    You're welcome! I can see how something like a QR code would be helpful in cases where the person you're sharing something with is offline, and that's what that feature request mentions. I can't make any promises about if or when that feature will come to 1Password, but our Product team does routinely monitor our feature requests. Keep an eye on the 1Password release notes to see what's new as it updates: 1Password Releases.
