The benefit of having a guest network is that guests can reach the internet without accessing your personal Nokia WiFi network. The guest network is disabled by default.

Your guest network can be either:

  • Password: guests must enter a password to connect (default)
  • Open: no password is required, but you need to grant internet access (*available with most configurations)

Enable a password-protected guest network

  • Tap the hamburger menu on the top left and select Guest Access
  • Tap the check box to activate/deactivate guest networks
  • Tap the Network Name text field; this enables the keyboard
    You can either accept the default—which is based on the name of your Nokia WiFi network—or provide a custom name
  • Tap the Network Password text field
    You can either accept the default value 12345678, or provide a custom value
  • Tap the Expires field; this presents you with eight options: Never, 1 Hr, 4 HRs, 8Hrs, 1 Day, 1 Week, 1 Month, and 1 Year
  • Tap Save
  • You see the message Saved successfully
