If the username/password are required to be entered on a “landing page” for the wifi supplier, then no, WyzeCam cannot connect to such networks as there is no user interface available to enter the information.

There is a workaround, but it does involve purchasing a $20 additional piece of hardware, a travel router. The travel router uses WISP protocol to allow you to log into the wifi provider on your computer or phone and then once authorized, the router bridges that signal to a separate wifi SSID which the camera can connect to.

One example of a travel router that is known to work with WyzeCam is:
