A lot of Wi-Fi router users are not aware of the status of their Wi-Fi Protected Status (WPS). They do not know whether their WPS is on or off and some actually don’t even know which way it should be. I used to be in the latter category, and I had to learn the hard way to turn off my WPS. The danger of having your WPS on is the fact that people can exploit it and access your Wi-Fi without your knowledge. Luckily, there are tools you can use to check the status of your WPS. One such tool is WPS Connect. In this review, I tell you why this app is an excellent choice.
WPS connect has a user-friendly interface that does not have a lot of elements and is quite simple to navigate and use. The design is minimalistic with a drop-down menu at the top right and several functions at the bottom. Even the less tech-savvy individuals would have an easy time using this Android app. 10/10.
The primary focus of WPS Connect is verifying whether or not your Wi-Fi router is susceptible to a default pin. Most routers are that way because router companies install their own vulnerabilities. It is essential to find out whether not your router is one of them so that you can take the necessary steps to secure it. The app will show you the status of your WPS in just a matter of minutes.
This app is currently compatible with Google Android devices only. This means you will have to look for an alternative if you are using an iOS device. 9/10.
This Google Play app for Wi-Fi analysis has terrific performance. It only takes a few seconds to know your WPS status, and the app does not slow down your phone. It also shows reliable results and doesn’t crash when in use. However, individuals with non-rooted devices have complained that they were getting error messages. The latest version includes an update that fixes this problem, as well as adds an ‘About Us’ section in the app. 10/10.
WPS Connect is free of charge and does not include any in-app purchases. It doesn’t get any better than this.
I love this app because it has made it possible for me to secure all my routers from getting accessed by individuals without authorized access. Apart from this, the app is hassle-free, consistent with performance and very effective. However, every good thing has its disadvantages. When it comes to this app, the downside is the fact that it is not available for iDevices and that people who want to take advantage of routers with open WPS can misuse it. However, despite this, I would still recommend it to anyone who is unsure about their WPS status and would like to ensure they are secure. This leading free-to-download app is available on Google Play Store.
