Snag one of these mounts and put your Nest WiFi anywhere in your home

Google's Nest Wifi router and point are popular mesh Wi-Fi solutions thanks to their compact size, solid speeds, and great software. The key to building a strong and efficient mesh system is to place the nodes in the most optimal places in your home. This sometimes means you won't have a good place to put the node, and leaving it on the floor is bad for signal. These great Nest Wifi mounts can help keep your home tidy while improving your signal and home network performance.

Maximize your space

Wasserstein AC Outlet Mount

Staff pick

Wasserstein's AC Outlet Mount requires a bit more assembly than others since you'll need to remove the existing outlet cover plate. Once installed, however, this mount is capable of holding your Nest WiFi or anything weighing seven pounds without putting a single hole in your drywall. Best of all, you'll still have easy access to the other outlet after the cable has been stowed away.

Simple bracket

Delidigi Wall Mount Bracket

The Delidigi Wall Mount Bracket provides a different approach to keeping your Nest Wifi tucked away and the cable hidden. This design allows you to wrap it beneath the mount, and then screw the mount itself into the wall. This model is available in black or white and enables more mounting options since you don't need to rely on your outlet positioning.

Put it anywhere

Wasserstein Wall Mount for Nest Wifi Point

This mount is attached directly to the walls using standard hardware, meaning you don't need to mess with covers or worry about outlet orientation. It's compatible with the Nest Wifi point only, but it can be placed at any height, which allows you to place your Nest Wifi point where it works best rather than where an outlet is.

For the Point

Nest WiFi Point Genie

The Nest Wifi Point Genie offers a simple solution for keeping cables organized and the points out of harm's way. Simply wrap the cable within the mount, install the point, and plug it into your outlet of choice. Unlike other outlet mounts, Mount Genie has included a dummy ground to add a bit more support to the unit in case your outlets don't fully grip the plug.

Ultra versatile

The Easy Outlet Shelf by Mount Genie

Mount Genie's Easy Outlet Shelf is another option that requires you to tinker with your outlet's cover plate. You'll need to unscrew the existing cover plate ever so slightly, place the Outlet Shelf inside, and tighten the screws. Then, you'll be able to place your Nest Wifi on top of the shelf and wrap the cable underneath.

Wherever you need it

Aobelieve Wall Outlet Mount for Google Nest WiFi Router

This Aobelieve mount can be hung directly from your power outlet or mounted to the wall. While tool-less outlet mounting is very easy, not everyone's outlets will grip the Nest Wifi's power adapter tightly enough to hold the unit reliably. Luckily, the bottom portion of this mount can be detached and mounted directly to the wall if it turns out your outlets aren't up to the task.

How should you mount your Nest Wifi?

There is no "right" answer to the question posed above. While there are benefits to mounting your router, many people will be happy to put their Nest Wifi on a shelf or desk. As with all of the best mesh Wi-Fi systems you can add more points down the line if you find coverage still isn't cutting it. If you haven't bought your mesh system yet, you might consider another brand as well such as TP-Link and Eero, which both offer compact extender-like mesh nodes.

If you're just looking to get your Nest Wifi up and out of the way, the Wasserstein AC Outlet Mount is a sensible pick since it mounts securely without drilling any holes and can be used with any other device that's the right size and weight. If you live in an apartment, you can use this mount without risking your security deposit on drywall screws. Just make sure you have access to your circuit breaker so you can turn off the power to the outlet before working on it.

Protect your kids by setting up a supervised YouTube account

YouTube Kids has been around since 2015 and has grown into a great place for children to explore what YouTube has to offer safely. In 2021, the company is expanding ways for younger viewers to see more of what's available from the streaming service, along with a more mature interface with supervised accounts. Instead of a separate app, these accounts will use the official YouTube app, so knowing how to set up a supervised account for kids on Youtube is important. If you want to protect your child from some of the less than appropriate content that can be seen on YouTube, then you'll want to be sure to have the supervised account properly set up. YouTube announced supervised accounts as a way for kids aged 9+ to see to more of what the service offers while still under the guidelines set by their parent. So, whether you have picked up one of the best phones for kids or maybe a tablet like the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD that has Google's Kids Space for your child, here&#

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Better phone, worse price

This upgrade is an uphill battle for Samsung thanks to steep competition. It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since Samsung redefined the "flagship killer" concept with the Galaxy S20 FE . At the time, the phone blew us away with its quality, delivering a true flagship experience for a significantly lower price than a "regular" Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S21 FE was rumored to be released the entire second half of 2021, and now it's finally here. The Galaxy S21 FE debuts with some of the expected upgrades over its predecessor but still retains many of the points that made the S20 FE a more affordable device. You won't find a brand new camera array on this phone when compared to 2020's device — that's a 12MP sensor for the main and ultra-wide lenses, while an 8MP sensor still resides behind the 3X telephoto lens — but Samsung has upgraded the styling to be more in line with the Galaxy S21 and the rumored look of the Galaxy

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people. It doesn't help that stock levels remain really tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we here at Android Central have seen PS5s stay in stock is between 15 to 20 minutes (often just a few minutes, though). That's also at random times, so finding a PS5 is a truly challenging task. Sony warned it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers promise more are coming and that Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called the system a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. And after spending a few months with the PS5, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive
