Wi-Fi Easy Connect

On Android 10 (API level 29) and higher devices, you can use Easy Connect to provision Wi-Fi credentials to a peer device, as a replacement of WPS which was deprecated in Android 9. Apps can integrate Easy Connect into their setup and provisioning flow by using the ACTION_PROCESS_WIFI_EASY_CONNECT_URI intent. This intent requires a URI. The calling app can retrieve the URI through various methods, including scanning a QR code from a sticker or display, or through scanning Bluetooth LE or NFC advertisements.

Once the URI is available, you can provision the peer device’s Wi-Fi credentials with the ACTION_PROCESS_WIFI_EASY_CONNECT_URI intent. This allows the user to select a Wi-Fi network to share and securely transfer the credentials.

Easy Connect does not require Location or Wi-Fi permissions.
