WPSApp is used to check the security level of the network with the help of the WPS protocol. WPS stands for Wi-Fi protection setup. The protocol allows the user to connect with the network using 8 digit pin number. The pin number used in the process is a predefined number in the router.
Introduction of WPSApp
WPS is a wireless network standard which enables the user to connect to the router using any wireless device quickly and effortlessly. It only works for the device those are password protected and use WPA personal and WPA 2 personal security protocols.
In case your wireless network is using WEP security than you are not able to use WPS. Because WEP security could blow easily even hacker has the least skills and tools. There is two version of the WPS app is available in the market.
- WPSApp: This is the free version of the App. It has basic features like to make the secure connection between device and router.
- WPAApp Pro: It is the latest version of the WPS. It has additional features like history and generic pins. It also has in build exception handling process which can help to fix the issue by using different types of algorithms such as Arris algorithm, Arcadyan algorithm.
Features of Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)
- This is a simple interface to make the connection between the device and the router.
- Only one client is able to make the connection at a time if other client tries to establish the connection. He will receive the error message that connection is not possible right now.
- Another client has to wait for some time to make the connection using the pin method.
- There is no need to make the connection every time as the pin of the connection is saving by the device and router configuration panel.
- You can establish the connection by just pressing the WPS button on the device. Overhead of the connection process is least as compared with the other processes of the device and router.

How to Make WPS connection?
WPS protocol can simplify the process and let the user make an authorized connection with the router. WPS can use two types of configuration methods. One method is push-button control, and other is the PIN method. Find below how the user can perform the WPS connection process using these methods.
- Firstly you need to press the WPS button on your router to check the new devices. Then you can check the available device network and select the network you want to connect with. The device will automatically connect to the network. There is no requirement to enter the network password.
- You might have so many devices which you want to connect with your router. What you have to do is you need to just switch on the WPS button on the router and devices. After that, you can directly connect devices to the router. There is no need to establish the connection every time. WPS by default send the network password to the device in future. Then you can easily connect with the device without even using the WPS button. All the devices will use the same password for the future connection.
- Next method uses the pin number process. With the use of 8 digit pin, you can connect your device to the router. The entire router which is WPS enabled has a pin code. This code is automatically generated by the process and cannot modify. You can get this pin from the WPS configuration page. Some device that does not have WPS button but supports WPS can ask for the pin. After entering the pin, the system will authenticate the process and add the device to the network.
- The last method to connect devices to the network is by generating pin from the client side. Some device that does not have a WPS button and support WPS can connect to the network by using the pin from the client end. The pin should need to enter in the router configuration panel to set up the wireless connection.
Hope you can find the security of WPS protocol using WPSApp Free or Pro version. Once they release the new version of this app, we’ll post here.
