One of the reasons why some airports, hotels, cafes and malls are working better than others is the “Free Wi-Fi”. However, we often forget that you are paying for these Wi-Fi connections with your personal data and other data points that the providers could use or sell to data collectors. It’s great that all these places offer free Wi-Fi to customers.
And the worst thing is, at many of these places, these free Wi-Fi is limited to 30 minutes or less, but many are starting to employ time limits to limit how long you spend in their establishments. Whatever the case may be, if you want to hang out longer than allowed, we generally require nothing more than a few clicks.
The solution would work practically everywhere ranging from airports to hotels to all coffee shops around the world that limit your time to access their free Wi-Fi service.
