Hello Mi Fans,

As you all know, MIUI is a feature rich ROM which helps us to do many things without depending too much on 3rd party apps. There are plenty of several simple, yet useful features can be found in MIUI. Here I'm introducing such a feature, which will helps us to share the login credentials of an already connected WiFi network among others without manually sharing them the actual password. It'll be very helpful when you need to give access to your friends/colleagues of your home/office WiFi network but don't want them to know your secret password or your cousin is lazy enough to type the complicated password you'd set. OK, enough introduction! Let's get into the tutorial.

1. Step 1

To begin, you need to open WiFi in your phone, which can be easily accessed by long pressing WiFi button in the notification panel above or from Phone Settings, and locate the already connected WiFi network you want to share. You can see a 'Tap to share password' text at the bottom of the name of your desired WiFi network. Click on it and a pop-up will emerge with a QR Code.

2. Step 2

Now ask your friend, colleague, relative or anyone you want to add to the WiFi Network to open Scanner app in their phones, which might be located inside Tools folder at the homepage. Scan the QR Code you were generated in your device in 1st step of this tutorial using his/her phone with the help of Scanner app.

3. Step 3

As soon as the scanning gets complete, a new screen will open with your WiFi network's SSID, Password (in a hidden state), Security protocol and a 'Connect to this network' button at the bottom. Click on that button and it will be automatically connects to the WiFi network. Isn't it cool?

That's all for today. Hope you all liked my thread. If you've any queries, feel free to ask in the comments section below, I'll try to answer them all.

Keep rocking with Mi and have a blessed day ahead, Regards
