Welcome to Wikirote. Today I am gonna share you a cool thing about google. Yes, the trick is about Guest Wi-Fi by Google. Google has a new feature and that is Guest Wi-Fi. This feature is especially useful if you share files over your home’s network that might contain sensitive information. Granted, you probably trust anyone who you specifically allow on your Wi-Fi network, but you can never be too cautious. So, let’s know about it.

Guest Wi-Fi

Guest Wi-Fi is a special network just for your guests. Guests will be able to get online and discover the devices that you choose to make available from your main Wi-Fi network.

When you have guests over who want to use your Wi-Fi, you want to give it to them…but you may not want them accessing the other devices on your network. Google WiFi makes it really simple to create a “guest network” that gives them access to the internet, but blocks them from accessing your local network files or other networked devices.

The method is quite simple and easy, and you just need to follow the simple step by step guide that will help you to easily create one guest network on your wifi system that you can assign to someone. So follow the below-discussed steps to proceed.
