Step 1 | Go onto the Authentication Settings tab

Simply head over to the tab and you'll see all the tools for editing how customers use your Guest WiFi.

Step 2.1 | Set connection time

How long do you want your visitors to stay connected to your WiFi?

Here you can choose the duration of each session. Users will automatically be logged out when this duration ends.

Below I've chosen a session time of 30 minutes as an example.

Step 2.2 | Set your availability timings

On the platform you can choose what days and times you allow customers to log in to your WiFi.

Take a look from one of our customers below, where we've allowed access only from 9am to 6pm on weekdays, as these are their opening hours.

Further, by clicking on the Edit Schedule button, you can open a new window where you can go into more details.

Here you can create multiple availability slots as shown below.
