The WPS protocol, also known as WiFi Protected Setup is an old and insecure connection method. Normally, people are used to connected to WiFi routers via SSID and password. However, when someone enables WPS on their router, they just have to push the button on router and phone/laptop connects without entering any password. Some routers may have it enabled and users may not know about it. This is a serious security issue. WIFI WPS WPA TESTER App is there to test it for you. It checks the vulnerability of any access point / router by using preset PINs. Use the WIFI WPS WPA TESTER App to try and connect to an unknown WiFi router. If it connects, then it means that it is vulnerable to WPS attack. Learn how to install and use WIFI WPS WPA TESTER for PC on laptops.
How to use it
There are two separate use cases for rooted and non-rooted Android users. However, if someone just wants to check the WPS vulnerability of a router, open the app and view available WiFi connections. Now click on your own WiFi router name. The app will now try to connect to it via WPS protocol. Since this protocol does not require any password, your phone or laptop will connect to it if there is no WPS lock. Otherwise, if the router is WPS locked, it is invulnerable.
The app may also try to use bruteforce methods to break through. If nothing works, stay assured that you network is protected. The rooted users may retrieve WiFi passwords of the routers too. However, not many people now root their devices since it is not that simple anymore.
How to secure your Router
Once the WIFI WPS WPA TESTER app finds out whether it is protected or not, next thing you need to do is to turn off WPS protocol. In order to do so, open the router settings page. It is normally located at 192.168.x.x address. You can check this address on back of the router. Moreover, get the admin password and ID from there too. Once entered, just turn off WPS push button settings to ensure that no hacker can penetrate your network.
