If you have connected your mobile phone to a network and wish to share the Wi-Fi or network connection with other smart phones, there is a very quick and easy way to do that when your smartphone is running Android 10 or later versions. In this quick guide we will show you how to share Wi-Fi network from a Tecno mobile. The instructions should also apply to other Android powered cell phones, such as Infinix mobile, Itel, that are running on Android 10 or later.
By sharing a Wi-Fi password through QR code, you won’t have to type those long and complicate passwords or bug your host as long as you’ve previously signed into their WiFi on your phone.
If you use your data plan instead of Wi-Fi network to connect to the internet, the internet connection can also be shared. Check out this tutorial to Share internet connection from Tecno mobile phone for more details.

You don’t have to turn on Wi-Fi or connect your device to the Wi-Fi network which you like to share with other devices or people.
If you’re not currently connected to the right network, navigate to Network & internet > Wi-Fi, find the Saved networks entry at the bottom of the page. On the Saved networks page, you can find all networks your device was connected to. Tap on the network name which you like to share to open the Wi-Fi Network details page, then select the Share button. Again you may need to confirm your face/fingerprint, lock pattern or PIN code before you see the QR code and share the Wi-Fi password.
