How do I login to a WiFi hotspot?
Some Wi-Fi hotspots require you to login before you can access the internet, through something known as a "captive portal." These are common at commercial locations like coffee shops, hotels, trains, and airports.
Depending on how the Wi-Fi network works, Speedify may allow you to sign in, or Speedify may see it as a malfunctioning network, and simply avoid the hotspot. In this case, the spinner next to the Wi-Fi connection will keep spinning, and the Wi-Fi connection will stay grayed out and disconnected.
To get past the login page, you will need to disconnect Speedify to access the login screen.
- Go to Speedify and use the On/Off switch to disconnect.
- Launch a web browser and go to an insecure site such as http://www.cnn.com/
- You should get the "Captive portal" web page. Agree to the Terms and Conditions.
- Return to Speedify and connect to a Speed Server.
Note: Generally logging into the hotspot should give you a day or so of access before you need to log in again.
