🐤 Can I tether from my mobile phone?
If you use your mobile phone hotspot as the primary WiFi connection, it is possible to connect Cubo to the App. However, this is NOT recommended since mobile hotspots may not provide a stable network to properly transmit data and utilize the AI functions. Besides, Cubo cannot connect to the hotspot of iPhone 7 and above. We strongly recommend that parents keep Cubo connected to their home WiFi network.
🐤 What WiFi security types does Cubo support?
Cubo currently supports WPA, WPA2 security protocols. For compatibility, reliability, and security reasons, it is not recommended to use WEP and WPA TKIP due to their security weaknesses.
Note: WEP and WPA TKIP encryption methods have been deprecated due to serious security flaws. If these encryption methods are used, the performance and other functions of 802.11n and 802.11ac cannot be fully utilized. In addition, the WiFi Alliance has requested the WiFi industry to gradually phase out WEP and WPA TKIP.
