wps-connect-for-pc-windows-mac-softgetaWe live in a digital world where we are surrounded by countless WIFI networks. Connecting to WIFI networks at work, home or even in public has become a common phenomenon. It can be frustrating at times to have no internet connection while there is a WPS enabled WIFI nearby. Well not anymore, WPS connect is an android application that attempts to connect to WPS secured WIFI networks.

Developed by Frox and at a small size of 2MB, WPS Connect is a handy app. With WPS Connect and a rooted device, one can easily exploit vulnerabilities in WPS secured networks. It does so by trying the default PIN(s) of a specific router. This is because WPS work by generating an eight-digit code/pin which a user can then use to join the network. WPS Connect tries to guess this pin so that the user can join (with permission from the owner obviously).

One can also use it to check whether their own network is vulnerable to attacks and adjust their passwords accordingly. This makes WPS Connect a double-edged sword and a very useful application if you have a router with WPS security protocol.

Features of WPS Connect

• Scan for the available networks and their security protocols (WPS, WPA2) from where you can know which network is vulnerable to exploit (WPS)
• Generate multiple PINs which one can try at a click of a button
• Easily input a provided PIN by clicking on “other” PIN button
