Popular networking product maker TP-Link released a major update to the official Deco router app this week. The update brings a completely redesigned interface, along with new parental controls, detailed network stats, and more.
Deco App 3.0
With the new version 3.0 of the application, Deco users will find a redesigned interface that is modern and easy to use. As described by TP-Link, the new app is designed for users to monitor their network at a glance. As soon as you open the app, it shows an overview of your internet connection with details about data usage and connected devices.
The app’s main screen also allowed users to quickly access router settings, enable guest network, and even share their Wi-Fi password with others by generating a QR code.
Users previously had access to a list of all devices connected to the network with the Deco app, but now it automatically assigns icons based on the category of the device (like smartphone or tablet). You can tap on a device in the list to see details such as its MAC address, IP address, data usage, as well as an option to prioritize that device’s data.
The parental control feature has also been completely redesigned with new options. For example, parents can select specific devices to restrict which websites will be available on that network, and they can set a bedtime or time limits for browsing the web.
Welcome to the Deco app – the perfect way to set up your mesh Wi-Fi in minutes and control your entire network. Once connected, you’ll have instant access to check on all connected devices, manage your kids’ online activity, and control your home network effortlessly. All from the palm of your hand.
Update now available
The new Deco app is available for free on the App Store. If you have already installed the old app, you just need to update it to the latest version. Be sure to check out some great deals for Deco routers on Amazon.
