You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to connect to a hidden WiFi network using the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. In order to connect to the WiFi network that is not visible, you will need to enable the WiFi setting on your Galaxy Tab S2.
First, swipe down from the top of your Tab.
Then, tap once on the "WiFi" icon.
If the "WiFi" icon is not there, tap on the settings icon. You will see that you have "WiFi" on the left side of the window.
To enable "WiFi", tap on the toggle on the right side. This will enable "WiFi".
In order to connect to a hidden network, tap on "MORE".
Once you've tapped "MORE", tap "Add network". The device will ask you what the network name is. The network name must be typed exactly as it appears on the router. If you have a hidden network, then you should know exactly what the name is.
In the case of this tutorial, connect to "sp" by typing it. You need to know the security type as well.
Tap on the "None" drop-down menu under "Security" to choose your security type.
Now, tap on the security type. In our case, this will be "WPA/WPA2/FT PSK".
Tap on "Enter password" under "Password" to type in the password of your network.
Once you've entered your password, tap on "CONNECT". Tapping on "CONNECT" should cause the device to connect to the network. You will see now that the network is displayed on the list. You will be connected to the network. It is a hidden network, which was not previously visible.
Now, tap on the green toggle to turn off "WiFi". You will see that there are no more networks visible because "WiFi" is off.
Tap again on the same toggle to turn on "WiFi". You will note that your hidden network will remain in your list, although it will be hidden to anyone else who doesn't have these credentials.
When you finish, just press the home button to go back to your home screen.
