Retrieve your network secret here

If you are on a KTH campus and have no network access use this guide

  1. Turn on your device’s Wi-Fi and connect to KTHOPEN.

  2. Once you have selected KTHOPEN a browser will open automatically (if you have an older model open a new tab on your browser). Follow the instructions for “To login” and go to “click here” to view your network secret, as shown in the picture below.
    PLEASE NOTE: KTHOPEN is not encrypted and your network traffic can be seen by others, the network should therefore only be used to retrieve your initial eduroam network secret.
