Set password for additional SSID
This is an obvious flaw I think, almost a bug. Of course it must be possible to have different passwords on standard, guest, and additional SSID/networks.
Or what do you say, Ubiquiti?
Hello @Jonas-Linnertz ,
Thank you for reaching out! Through the smartphone app, you can create a guest network with a different password than the main SSID. Please find these settings under "Wireless" in the smartphone app.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions!
@ubnt-jack Yes but what I mean is that you can't set a password for the additional SSID, all you can set is a SSID name. That is a security flaw I think. Or at least a missing functionality.
We appreciate your input! The additional SSID shares the same password as your main SSID @jonas-linnertz . Your main WiFi password should be kept extremely safe and personal to you and those you trust. A guest network is specifically designed for people and devices that you do not completely trust, hence why the guest network exists in the first place with it's own specific password.
I hope this explains the situation a little bit better.
@ubnt-jack someday soon i hope we can assign a third password that is also on a separate lan, to be used for iot devices. really need a totally separate network for iot. also need to be able to assign at least 1 physical port to iot network.
@jonas-linnertz it isn't designed for that, it isn't a separate network so there's no real security flaw.
I to have asked for separate internal vlan/SSID with configurable routing between them, specifically for that reason iot, kids, etc...
But what I ended up doing in the meantime was changing my original ssid to the guest Network and creating a new ssid for my wife, I, Google Homes, Chromecast, ETC. That way no one can access our devices. Not perfect but it works!
