Connect to a Hidden WiFi Network with Android
ohmygosh, you have no idea how glad I am to have stumbled across your site. several hours now I tried to connect my phone to my hidden wlan, yet nothing worked. I downloaded the hidden ssid app, but that also didn’t work. obviously I did it the wrong order, because with your description now it worked. thank you so much. now I just hope my phone won’t loose the connection when I turn off the router or leave the range or whatever. but well, that’s probably something I have to try out.
This works for me!
What Robert said!
On some newer devices, Android will still not see the hidden network after the above procedure. You need use an app like Clean Master to clear who-knows-what hidden info in the background, and then it works.
Tho this has been a jurasic post, it somehow helped me solved the problem. I even though of having my android device repaired because I thought it was really broken (not being able to connect to my wifi with hidden SSID). Thanks for the tip!
