WIFI - connecting to hidden networks

Hi Singular,

How do we connect to hidden WiFi networks? It shows (hidden network) but there is no option to enter a network name. It just immediately asks for a password, and of course does not connect. Any help folks? I’m using the latest 3.5 beta software.

Hey there,

this is something we hadn’t needed to deal with just yet so it is not currently doable, but Dev tells me we can do a small UX fix for it to be allowed.

Definitely should be doable in either the next release or the following,

thanks for your question!

Hi Brennan,

Thanks very much. Many of us hide the WiFi address for better security. This is a helpful fix.

Don’t know if this will work but if you’re on a Mac, you can try it.

  • Unmask your hidden network
  • Connect to the network using the SSID (name) and password
  • Click Remember this network
  • Mask your network so that it’s hidden again
