Jeeeez, what a bad joke.
They’re calling this “secure” then providing an open door for you to access via phone. LOL.

I’m not a fan of routers that can only be configured via a proprietary smartphone app. My router can be configured via a web browser, which make configuration possible on a number of devices. This also makes the configuration future-proof, since web browsers are updated more frequently than I would expect for a router configuration app, ensuring that new devices and/or operating systems won’t introduce compatibility issues. I do believe OpenWRT devices can be configured with SSH, which is also non-propriety, allowing for a wide range of compatibility.
