Netgear’s latest mobile app makes connecting mobile devices to your home network easier than ever.
Tired of having to recite your painfully-long (but highly-secure) network password every time a friend wants to get on your WiFi? If you happen to have a Netgear router, you’ll never have to rely on your faulty memory again. With its new EZ Connect technology, all you need to do is scan a QR code with your mobile device, and voila, you’re connected.
Of course, you’ll have to download a companion app first to make all this possible. Snag the Netgear Genie here. Once it’s all set up, you can even create a guest network for visitors to log onto just by scanning, so there’s no need to write down your network name and password on a sticky note anymore.
Sure, it’s not the most groundbreaking technology, but it’s definitely a cool idea that makes life just a bit easier.
