Sometimes, when you’re just arriving or flying through an airport, time is the essence. Whether you’re looking for local transit information or trying to check your Airbnb’s neighborhood, it can be far from helpful to mess around to gain access to the Wi-Fi network.
Join WiFox, an effective app that lists international passwords for official networks in airports. Visitors also find an open wireless Internet connection because traveling a lot of times is a challenge.
Blogger and computer security engineer Anil Polat created an app to share a map containing Wi-Fi passwords that can be quickly accessed by travelers. A map preview of Google MyMaps can be seen below.
WiFox is updated in real-time, with verified information supplied by other travelers, pilots, industry professionals, and reliable sources. Icons on the app list if password information is available, and what network travelers should use.
It shows the lounges and terminals where wireless is available and allows you to copy the password directly into your phone’s settings. Access points with time limits are also shown, with WiFox outlining how to work around this.
Travelers can rate password information, letting Anil know if he needs to update something through WiFox. Icons are also color-coded to show how fresh and reliable the info is. The idea came from a blog post-Anil did contain a map and a list of Wi-Fi passwords and hotspots.
WiFox is available in iOS & Android for $1.99 and includes password and app updates throughout their lifetime.
