    So I saw @Luciffer do this at his home. There was a QR code and if you scan it, boom you are connected to wifi.
    I downloaded a qrcode app on android, put wifi password and SSID and created a QR code. However when I scan it back it doesn't connect to wifi, it does however obtains the information about wifi. It pointed out downloading and installing another qrcode plugin for wifi, which is already installed but it was not helping in anyway.
    Also I heard that iphone won't allow to connect anyway directly?
    Help/Advice?

    A Qr code to save the hassle of giving them SSID and password? Am I clear enough?

    Not really, maybe that's the problem. You should review your steps once more and see if you missed anything.

    I have seen this stuff at Luciffers place. I don't think you have used it.

    actually I just did,

    Use QR Code Generator: QR Stuff Free Online QR Code Creator And Encoder For T-Shirts, Business Cards & Stickers to generate your Wifi Login Code

    And

    Code:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=tool.scanner
    App to connect.

    - Select Wifi Login (Android) at Step 1.
    - For Step 2 Enter your Wifi Network Name as SSID and your Wifi password + Select the type of Encryption you are using. It should be WPA/WPA2
    - Step 3 is Optional
    - Now check the live preview of the generated QR Code and test it directly from the screen.

    Now goto your phone's Wifi Settings - Turn on your Wifi -
    "Forget" your existing Wifi Connection and then connect using the QR Code Scan & Barcode Scanner App to connect to your Wifi via your phone.
