SureLock/SureFox offers an effective lockdown of your device with no access to device settings and access only to allowed applications and websites respectively. However, there are times, when the user requires access to certain settings in devices like Wi-Fi Settings. This is mostly required for those devices which are constantly on the move from one Wi-Fi network to another or devices whose Wi-Fi Network access credentials changes frequently for security reasons.

You can overcome this concern with help of the Wi-Fi Center which is automatically installed when you install SureLock/SureFox.

In SureLock, once it is added as an Allowed Application, it allows the users to access and modify Wi-Fi Settings without access to device settings.

To add Wi-Fi Center as Allowed Application in SureLock, follow the below-mentioned steps:

1. Access SureLock Settings

2. On the SureLock Settings screen, tap on Allowed Applications

3. On the Allowed Applications screen, tap on Add App

4. Select Wi-Fi Center from the Plug-in Apps list

5. Tap on Done to complete

Once done, you can launch the Wi-Fi Center to:

  • turn Wi-Fi on or off
  • connect/disconnect Wi-Fi
  • switch between different Wi-Fi Networks

In SureFoxWi-Fi Center can be enabled by enabling and including the Configure Wi-Fi option in the Context Menu.

To enable and include the Configure Wi-Fi option in the Context Menu, follow the below-mentioned steps:

1. Access SureFox Settings

2. On the SureFox Settings screen, tap on Display Settings

3. On the Display Settings screen, tap on Enable Context Menu

4. Tap on Context Menu Items and select Configure Wi-Fi from the given list

5. Tap on Done to complete

6. Once done, on long-press on the SureFox screen will launch a context menu with Configure Wi-Fi option

7. Using Wi-Fi Center, you can perform the following actions  :

  • turn Wi-Fi on or off
  • connect/disconnect Wi-Fi
  • switch between different Wi-Fi Networks

Steps to configure WiFi Centre:

  1. Launch WiFi Centre.
  2. Click Setting and enter the Password (Default is 0000)
  3. Check Launch web page when connected to open network option.
  4. Tap on the Webpage URL and enter the URL for WiFi authentication

    This step can also be used to set the sign-in page for the open network in the WiFi center.

Note: In case the end-user is not aware of the URL of the Wi-Fi center, they can enter http://www.42gears.com/blank.html in the URL section. This page will automatically, show the authentication page of the Wi-Fi hotspot.
