Policies: Configuration – Mac Autologin

The Mac Autologin module let you control security policy based on Mac address of the devices. This include the functionality of auto register user’s device mac address to their account and  enable mac security only to allow the user’s account to able to login using the  same device registered.

What is MAC Autologin?

Guests want a seamless, automatic connection to the network. They want to avoid the hassle of searching for a network or logging on via cumbersome portal pages. What’s more, they expect the same level of Wi-Fi performance and security they get at home. 

The simplest way to automatically connect guests to the Wi-Fi network is by recognizing the media access control (MAC) address on the guest’s device. The MAC address is a unique 12-character identifier assigned to the network adapter located in the guest’s device. MAC authentication has been available for many years and simply requires a guest to opt-in once to have to have their device “remembered” by the network for future connections via the Mac Auto register function in Kiwire™ platform.

Mac Device Security Setting
Mac Autologin Enable Mac auto-login feature that allow user to login automatically to network
using their mac address that is associated with the user account
Mac Auto Register Enable Mac auto register will automatically register or update user account with user’s device mac address when login.

*note : if mac security is enabled, the mac auto register function will only work on 1st time the user login using the account subsequent login , user mac device will not be updated to the account

Mac Security This feature enables you to prevent user sharing their user account with other users, as it will only allow the registered mac address of the device to be able login using the account, with Mac auto register is enabled, it will automatically register the user mac address into the account if the account existing mac address record is empty.

Policies: Configuration – Autologin

The Autologin module let you set auto login for user to automatically reconnect to captive portal and login to network without entering their credential. This will help prevent captive portal fatigue and also enable auto login function to equipment that does not support mac autologin. The cookies auto login will store user login credential into the user browser the moment they login to network successfully, when they reconnect to the same network, Kiwire™ will check if the cookies exist or still valid , if valid it will auto login the users.

Autologin Setting
Cookies Autologin Enable auto-login feature that allow user to login
