WPA2 / WPA3 Personal authentication

WPA2 is currently the most secure standard utilizing AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) and a pre-shared key for authentication. WPA2 is backwards compatible with TKIP to allow interoperability with legacy devices. WPA3 Personal is available as a setting in the local browser user interface (UI). This personal authentication option is a more secure option than WPA2.

Use the following guidelines to configure WPA2 or WPA3 Personal authentication.

WPA3 Personal is applicable to iOS 13.0 or supported newer versions.
