How do I check what WiFi encryption type my network is using?

It is possible to check the WiFi encryption type on Windows, Mac, and Android devices. It is not possible to check on iOS devices without third party software.

Android:

  • Navigate to Settings and WiFi
  • Touch on the network you are correctly connected to and select View
  • You will find your security encryption type under Security

 

OSX:

  • Navigate to System Preferences and select Network
  • Make sure WiFi (or Airport) is selected and highlighted and click Advanced at the bottom right
  • You will find your security encryption type listed as Security under the WiFi tab

 

Windows PC:

  • Click on the wireless indicator at the bottom right corner of the screen
  • Hover over the network you are connected to and it will display the security encryption type under Security Type
