In the world of technology, it is always important to keep up with the latest and greatest. For example, if you have an Android phone, you may want to know how to find the network name or SSID on your phone. This can be helpful if you’re trying to troubleshoot an issue with your wireless router or access point at home.
The network name, or SSID, is the name of your wireless router. It’s similar to a password, but it cannot be used as one. The SSID is a unique identifier for every router out there, just like your phone number is a unique identifier for you. If someone knows your phone number but not your cell provider and you don’t have caller ID blocked, they can still call you based on that number alone.
How to find ssid on android phone?
Follow the steps below to find your wireless network name or SSID on an Android phone:
To open your Settings app, tap the cog icon in the top right of your device. The settings app will be either under “Wireless and Networks” or “Connections”, depending on your device’s operating system.
Now that you know how to locate the SSID on your Android device, it’s time to access the network. To connect, go back to the Wi-Fi page and tap on your current WiFi connection. This will bring up a menu with options for connecting or disconnecting from the network as well as for “forgetting” (deleting) this connection so that other devices cannot use it in their search for available networks.
If you have an active internet connection through either cellular data or Wi-Fi, then you can proceed with connecting by tapping on Connect when prompted with an authentication request message box. This will open a browser window asking if you want to allow this device access via Internet Access Service (IAS). If so, select Allow at this point and confirm any additional prompts by selecting OK or Yes when necessary.
Make sure Wi-Fi is turned on
You should check that Wi-Fi is turned on. To do this, open up Settings and go to the Wi-Fi section of your phone or tablet. You’ll see a toggle switch for turning Wi-Fi on or off. Make sure that it’s set to “on.” If you’re having trouble connecting with other devices, try turning off Wi-Fi to see if that fixes the problem.
If your device is already connected to a network through another method (like Bluetooth), then you won’t be able to connect through Android Device Manager until you disconnect from it or turn it off.
The network name (SSID) is displayed next to each network in the list
If you have a private network, use the SSID and password to connect the device to your network.
If you have a public network, you can use it without connecting to it. However, for security reasons, we recommend that you do not share any personal information such as passwords or credit card numbers with this public wireless access point (WAP).
When you connect to a new wifi network, you need to know the ssid (Service Set Identifier) of that network. That’s the name of it. If you don’t know what it is, then how on earth are you going to connect?
You are going to need this when you try and connect yourself!
Things to consider while finding ssid on android phone
-You may need to check your wifi settings on your phone before you can connect to any network.
-If the password is not provided, then it could be hidden from you.
-In some cases, there are different types of security protocols that may prevent you from connecting to a particular wireless network.
-If you are not connected to any wifi network, then it may be because there is no signal from any nearby networks.
-Some networks may require you to log in with a password. If this is the case, then you will need to ask for this information from someone who knows it.
-If there is no password, then you may need to check your wifi settings on your phone.
Now that you are familiar with how to find your wireless network name (SSID), you can connect to other networks as needed.
