Add or remove a network manager

Have housemates or need help controlling your wireless settings? You can add anyone with a Google Account as a manager of your network.

Your Wi-Fi network only have one owner, but as many managers as you want. Managers can view the same data and edit the same settings as the owner, but can’t factory reset your Wifi point(s) or add new Wifi point(s). If a manager makes changes to the network settings, the owner will be notified.

When you add a manager, they will receive an email notification.

Note: Their email needs to be associated with a Google Account. If it isn’t, we’ll automatically send them instructions on how to make their email address Google compatible.

  5. Enter the person’s email address. (The email address must be associated with a Google Account. If it isn’t, we will email them instructions on how to make it compatible.) You can add as many managers as you want.
  6. Tap Save when you’re done.
