Write Wi-Fi connection information to an NFC tag

Before you begin: Turn on NFC on your device.

By writing Wi-Fi connection information to an NFC tag, you can allow others to connect to a password-protected Wi-Fi network with a simple tap of a device. This is helpful, for example, if you want to let guests use your home Wi-Fi network when they visit.

If the Wi-Fi network requires a username and password, for example, a Wi-Fi network at work, you can't write the Wi-Fi connection information to an NFC tag.

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen once using two fingers, or twice using one finger.
  2. Tap the Settings icon > Wi-Fi.
  3. If necessary, turn on the switch.
  4. Tap the Overflow icon > Saved networks.
  5. Touch and hold a network name.
  6. Tap Write to NFC tag.
  7. Align the back of your device to an NFC tag, and then tap your device on the tag.
