Some public Wi-Fi networks require user authorization to receive the Internet.
Where is authorization needed?
Most often, an authorization request for connecting to the Internet is requested in the following places:
- Shopping centers.
Sometimes such networks have the status of open networks, and in some cases, you must first enter a password. But in any case, even if you see that your device displays the status “connected to a Wi-Fi network”, authorization is required to get the Internet. This is indicated by the inscription “Authorization is required” in the status of the network with which the connection is established.
In order to authorize, you must click or tap (depending on the type of your device) directly on this inscription or open any web page in your device’s browser.
Authorization options in a public Wi-Fi network
The most common authorization methods:
- You just have to accept the terms.
- The network provider sends you a QR code, which you must scan and follow the link.
If you are afraid to indicate your real e-mail address, specify any kind of firstname.lastname@example.org. As a rule, the network provider does not send messages to your mail to confirm the entrance. Validation takes place only by the presence of the “@” and “.” Icons in the mailing address.
After you check the box, you accept all the conditions:
- Click on the “Connect” button.
- Receive a notification that you are connected to the network.
- Close the notification window.
- Use the internet.
