WPS push button in Android 9 pie

Hello,

I've got a small question:

Isn't there a WPS push button on Android 9 pie anymore?

Hi @JAlbr12 ;

 

The WPS button was removed with the Android Pie update.

Hi @JAlbr12, welcome to our forum!

As @NunoSEN2 wrote, the WPS button, both for Wi-Fi and when using the device as a hotspot has been removed by Google in Android 9.0.

I hope that answers your question! Slightly smiling Face

Hi @Safiko, welcome to our forum!

Your question has been translated to English as this is an International forum.

You can still connect to a Wi-Fi network the "normal" way without using the WPS push button by tapping on the network and entering the password it and then connect to it. As far as I know, there aren't any kind of routers that only use a WPS push button and you can always use a password to connect to the network.

I hope that helps! Slightly smiling Face

Re: WPS push button in Android 9 pie

Hi,

 

WPS push button method is hackable method and Google now days more secure. So, google removed the WPS method. But, in earlier Android 4 WPS option will be for both master and client. After they removed the WPS master option for securty purpose.

 

If you want to add WPS option, You needs to do the configuration in BSP.

 

Please look the blow link,
