Where is WPS in Mobile?

Answered by Jarrod Smith

On a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet, the WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) feature can usually be found in the settings menu. The exact location of the WPS option may vary slightly depending on the device and the operating system it is running on, but I will provide a general guide on how to locate it.

1. Start by accessing the settings menu on your mobile device. This is typically done by tapping on the gear icon, which represents settings, on your home screen or app drawer.

2. Once you are in the settings menu, look for the “Network & Internet” or “Connections” option and tap on it. This section is usually where you can find all the settings related to your device’s network connectivity.

3. In the “Network & Internet” or “Connections” screen, you should see an option called “Wi-Fi.” Tap on it to access the Wi-Fi settings.

4. On the Wi-Fi screen, you will see a list of available Wi-Fi networks. Look for the three-dot menu icon or the gear icon, usually located at the top-right corner of the screen, and tap on it. This will open additional options related to Wi-Fi.

5. Among the additional options, you should see an option called “Wi-Fi Preferences” or “Advanced.” Tap on it to access more advanced Wi-Fi settings.

6. In the Wi-Fi preferences or advanced settings screen, you may find the WPS options. The exact labels may vary, but there are typically two options: “WPS Push button” and “WPS Pin entry.”

7. The “WPS Push button” option allows you to connect to a Wi-Fi network using the WPS push button method. This method involves pressing the WPS button on your router and then initiating the connection from your mobile device.

8. The “WPS Pin entry” option allows you to connect to a Wi-Fi network by entering a PIN code. This method requires you to enter the WPS PIN provided by your router into your mobile device.

Please note that not all mobile devices or routers support WPS, and the availability of these options may vary. Additionally, it is worth mentioning that WPS has some security vulnerabilities, and it is generally recommended to use more secure methods, such as WPA2-PSK encryption, for securing your Wi-Fi network.

The location of the WPS options may differ slightly based on the device and operating system, but following the general steps outlined above should help you locate them on most mobile devices.
