Hi. There doesn’t seem to be a way to secure the sensor. It seems like it can possibly be used as a hotspot. Any way to secure it that I’m missing?
I understand having concerns about safety. Even though we call the PurpeAir network a hotspot, it does not provide access to the internet. If a device were to connect to the PurpleAir network, it would disconnect from the internet and only have access to the sensor’s Wi-Fi settings. Additionally, once the sensor is configured to Wi-Fi, you should no longer see it as an available network. Therefore, it removes it as an option for surrounding networks to connect to.
