With the Share My WiFi feature in the Ignite HomeConnect App you can get your houseguests connected to your home WiFi network with ease.

Sharing your WiFi login

There are two ways you can share your WiFi connection through the Ignite HomeConnect App. The first is with a QR code, and the other is by sharing your login credentials from the app with a share button.

  1. Open and sign in to the Ignite HomeConnect App using your Shaw ID and password.
    • If you have multiple accounts linked to this Shaw ID you will need to make sure your Internet account is the default account.
  2. Select Share your WiFi from the Overview tab.
    • Note: If you are using an iOS device, you have an additional option to share via the Connect tab by clicking on the WiFi symbol.
  3. From here there are two options to share your WiFi connection:
    1. Have your guest scan the QR code that appears in the app to connect to your WiFi network.
      • The guest's device will automatically connect to your network with no need to enter your WiFi password.
    2. Select the Share button and enter your guest's mobile phone number or email address.
      • This will send either a text or email message with your WiFi network name and password.
