Add Emoji to your Wi-Fi’s SSID (with Firebug) ???? | #lulz #emoji
Mischief maker Jason Eppink explains the relatively simple process for adding emoji to your SSID:
(tl;dr — Use Firebug to remove a call to a function that checks for illegal characters from the “Submit” button.)
Do you want to use an emoji (or other non-Roman character) in your Wi-Fi SSID, but you keep getting foiled by a “Character is not allowed” error?
Now it’s all fun-n-dandy that others would get to see the name of your SSID in their list of available networks, but I’m curious if this process could also make it more difficult for intruders to join the network by disabling the SSID broadcast — I’ll have to do some experimenting with that!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
