Wi-Fi Secure uses 802.1x authentication when users try to connect.

802.1x is an enterprise security standard that ensures that every member at your location has their own password and joins only their own company’s network.

In an Enterprise, administrators can easily control the type of device that connects to the network and their settings. In bringing enterprise security to a Coworking environment we have to deal with a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) world, with users arriving with devices old and new, each with different and conflicting wifi settings.  

Following the Catalina update to macOS we have noted that some macOS device now struggle to connect and stay connected to the WiFi Secure network.

We have created a downloadable settings file that configures a specific profile just for WiFi Secure. No other changes are made. The text file can be read in a text editor if you have any concerns. The file can be downloaded here

Please see an explanatory video below on how to install the profile:
