WLAN PSK with less than 8 characters

Can you configure a PSK with less than 8 characters at Meraki?

If I try to configure a PSK with less than 8 characters, I get an error message that it should be at least 8 characters.

I know it's not safe.

But I still ask, can you set somewhere that smaller PSK are accepted.

 

Thanks.

No, it is not possible to configure a PSK shorter than 8 characters.

Hi @Mamba123 - If security isn't a concern why not leave the SSID open?

Thanks, that was also my question.

The WPA2 standard requires the PSK to be at least 8 characters, so this should be consistent across all compliant vendors (including clients), not just a Meraki specific thing.
