Automatically Connect to Clearpass Guest on my Device

[ Edited ]

Our school uses Clearpass Guest, for which I have a username and password to connect to the wireless network. Recently I got an Android device and find it annoying to always open a browser to type in my credentials in order to log in. I was hoping there is a way to automatically connect to Clearpass Guest using my credentials every time I connect to the Wi-Fi network, without the need to open a browser. While this would also be handy on Windows I am mainly looking for a way to do this on Android. I could probably write a script to automate this, but I'm hoping one already exists that I can just use.

Thanks in advance.

You should contact your school's help desk for assistance.

I suppose I should. I was just hoping there was a way to do this myself.

There may be a security reason they're asking you to login consistently.

Possibly. Could be because they also use M86 Web Filter and couldn't figure out how to get them to play nicely together. I take it, then, that there's no way for me to automatically login to this network using existing tools?
