Unfortunately most wireless networks are fairly insecure, which is due to their reliance on WiFi Protected Access or WPA2. While a Google Nest WiFi network will by default us WPA2, it is able to utilise the newer WPA3 standard. So in this video we take a look at how you enable WPA 3 for your Google Nest WiFi network.
Note: While WPA3 is backward compatible with WPA2, you might find that very old devices are not able to connect to a WPA3 enabled network. So if needed simply switch off WPA3 on your Google Nest WiFI network, to once again allow older incompatible devices to connect.
Quick reference notes:
- Open the Google Home app
- From the Home screen select Settings
- In Home Settings choose Nest WiFi
- Locate WPA3 and toggle on
