Linksys WiFi is a free service that is bundled with the Linksys smart wireless routers. The Linksys cloud account application allows you to configure your router’s WiFi settings over the internet locally or remotely.
On the other hand, it lets you access your Linksys router remotely as well to configure your router settings or to view your home network from anywhere as long as there is an active and uninterrupted internet connection.

Note: This app supports iOS and Android devices. You can download it easily from the App Store or Google Play.
