This publication describes systems and techniques for a single entry point for Wi-Fi onboarding. Portable electronic devices, including smartphones, include wireless transceivers to allow users to access local wireless networks (e.g., Wi-Fi networks). Different wireless networks require different onboarding procedures and credentials to allow devices to connect for the first time. The varying systems and credentials can be challenging for users to navigate and understand. This publication describes a single entry point (e.g., under the Settings menu) for seamless Wi-Fi onboarding. The entry point can direct the user to a service provider’s onboarding process to reduce educational and infrastructure costs for service providers and simplify the process for users.
