Announcements New Tether App Launching!
Just after Deco App 3.0 and Kasa App 3.0, TP-Link is now releasing its new Tether App, which version is 3.8.16 for iOS and 3.8.6 for Android. By the time an update becomes available to our customers, the new Tether App has already gone through an extensive testing process which includes the functionality of the new app to get acquainted with the new features and to test the overall stability of the app.
* This release is a rolling update, so everyone will get it in the coming days. If you have not received the update, make sure to check your app store for any available updates.
Below are some of the main changes that we thought we should share with our users first.
New UI Enhancements:
Setting up HomeShield > Parental Controls now requires navigating to the Family tab from the bottom menus, you can create your family profiles, add devices to each of them, and set time controls just like before.
You can now go to the Security tab directly to scan for network security, check and monitor the malicious websites that get blocked, monitor how external attacks get blocked by Intrusion Prevention, etc.
Weekly Report, QoS, Network Performance Optimization
The Weekly Report, QoS, Network Performance Optimization, as well as more functionality options, have now been moved into Tools. The configuration and setting options are the same as those before the update.
This latest release also includes some other enhancements and bug fixes. Be sure to update your TP-Link router or extender to the latest version with the Tether app in order to explore all the great features or enhancements.
