How to generate a QR code with the Wi-Fi password on a alcatel 1B (2020)

If you want to share the password or key of the network your alcatel 1B (2020) is connected to, and quickly set it up on another Android device (whether it's a alcatel or another brand), this tutorial will show you how. We'll guide you on using the native method included in Android 10 and later versions to generate a QR code with the Wi-Fi password.

The alcatel 1B (2020) comes with Android 10.0 out of the box, though it may have received updates over time.

Once you generate the QR code on your 1B (2020), you can scan it with the camera of the other device or download it as an image. This way, you can reuse the code whenever you need without repeating these steps.

In the final step, you'll also be able to view the password in case you need to copy it or manually enter it on another device that cannot read QR codes.

Estimated time: 2 minutes.
