This tutorial describes how to set up the Wi-Fi eduroam on android.

Android is used by many different manufactureres and therefore can look very different. We can't offer unstructions for every device.

Bevore setting up eduroam, we must create and install a certificate. You can use mobile data for this. Otherwise use webauth.
