Re: How do I get CA certificate for wifi security

The app doesn't install a certificate on Android. I have a Google Pixel 2 running Android Pie with the latest updated. Also, I am a network administrator and I set up Enterprise wifi regularly. This app doesn't install the CA certificate which is required for the secure wifi to work. Please resolve promptly and escalate this issue. Thanks.

This no longer works and they have discontinued consumer access. Only business accounts can use the secure "XFINITY" hotspots now. The online documtation has not been updated to reflect business-only and is now incorrect.

Re: How do I get CA certificate for wifi security

There are two different kinds of Xfinity Wifi that you can connect to:

 

The first is the one with the name “xfinitywifi”. After you select this one on your device, launch your browser. You will be redirected to the XFINTY WiFi sign in page. If the page doesn’t automatically redirect, type a different address in your web browser – such as www.xfinity.com – to be redirected to the XFINITY WiFi sign in page. You can then use your XFINITY username and password to sign in and start browsing, streaming and more.

 

The second one is named “XFINITY”. You cannot connect directly to this SSID, but you can get access by installing the security profile on your device. More information about the security profile is available here: https://wifi.xfinity.com/default.php#security
Once the application or profile is installed, sign in using your XFINITY username and password and start browsing, streaming and more.

Do you have any docs to corroborate this assertion ?
