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. 

 

We recommend that everyone update their application from either the App Store or the Google Play Store to take advantage of the new features as soon as possible.

 

* 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:

 

Parental Controls

 

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.

Real-Time Protection*

 

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.

  @Riley_S this app is a great start but it needs a dark mode. I am being blinded by this app at night! Also the app has black bars on the top and bottom on my phone. This didn't happen on the old version.

  @DecoMyEcho,

Dark Mode for the Apps is something that we have seen for both Smart Home and Home Networking apps, as the new versions have now been released, the team may have time to start developing this feature for our apps. I will pass the feedback along with the other posts with similar requests.

 

In terms of the black bars, what type of device do you have that is showing the bars?
