Using SecurePass™

The functionality discussed in this article is an optional module of the Smart WiFi Platform. Reach out to support if you’re interested in finding out if your hotspot can support SecurePass.

If your hotspot has SecurePass enabled guests that purchase a Multi Device Guest Plan will be served a WiFi PSK unique to their Guest Plan that can be used to connect to the secure Guest WiFi SSID.

Please ensure you report the name of the private SSID to support and that you’re Guest Plans are properly configured so your guests will receive their PSK.
