When you connect to the rockspace router’s/extender’s Wi-Fi network on your iPhone, iPad, or other Apple devices, you see an “Unsecured Network” beneath the network name.

Why "Unsecured Nework" shows on your Apple device

The reason you will see the weak security message is that Apple devices use WPA3 Personal, WPA2/WPA3 Transitional and WPA2 Personal - Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption types, while some rockspace models only support WPA2, WPA/WPA 2 Transitional. Android users will not see this prompt.

However, this does not imply that your Wi-Fi network is not secure. WPA2-PSK (Pre-Shared Key) is secure enough for a home network and protects your devices from getting hacked.

Models do not support WPA2- AES and WPA3:

  • RSD0607 (AC750 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender)
  • RSD0608 (AC1200 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender)
  • RSD0617 (AC2100 Wi-Fi Range Extender)
  • RSD0623 (AC2100 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Range Extender) (Supports WPA2-AES)
  • RSD0614 (AC2100 Smart Wi-Fi Router)
  • RSD0610 (AC1200 Dual-band Mesh Wi-Fi System)
  • RSD0613 (AC2100 Tri-band Mesh Wi-Fi System)


If you wish to upgrade your home network to WPA3, you can select rockspace WPA3-supported devices.
