Configuring the Guest Access feature through the Linksys app

The Guest Access feature of the Linksys Smart WiFi routers allows guests to use your internet connection without granting access to your files and other devices connected to your main network.  This means that though your friends can still visit different websites, they will not be able to access printers or any shared files in your home computers.
 
This article will guide you on how to configure the Guest Access feature using the Linksys app.
 
NOTE:  Steps and images may vary depending on the operating system of your mobile device, version of your Linksys app or the model of your router.

 
Step 1:
Connect your mobile device to your router's WiFi then open the Linksys app.
