The NETGEAR Nighthawk app is a simple-to-use platform for managing all your Netgear Nighthawk devices and services. It offers a clear dashboard containing high-level information about your network overall, your Wi-Fi settings, internet speed, parental control and security settings, and more. The Nighthawk app provides convenient access to your NETGEAR router’s features and allows you to manage your network from anywhere.

The Nighthawk app allows you to conveniently access all the various features of your router. For example, if you have a Nighthawk Tri-band Mesh WiFi 6 System, you can fully control it, including completely pausing your Wi-Fi and running system updates. The Nighthawk app provides access to set up and monitor smart parental control features for each device. For maximum protection of your network and devices, the Nighthawk app allows you full access and control of your Netgear Armor security settings.

Furthermore, the app allows you to monitor & control features like internet speed, guest Wi-Fi, traffic meter and more. Remote access means you can carry out all of the App’s functions from anywhere you want.

You need the Nighthawk app in order to see your connected devices and access your router features, all from the palm of your hand. Alternatively, you can install and manage your NETGEAR router without using the Nighthawk app. To do so you will need to launch a web browser from a computer or mobile device that is connected to your router’s network and use NETGEAR router login. However, using the Nighthawk app is the easiest way to manage your router’s settings and wireless network.
