Blogger and computer security engineer, Anil Polat
, has saved travellers from labouring over free Wi-Fi connection at airports with this interactive map.
The WiFox map, as Polat calls it, contains all Wi-Fi passwords of airport networks across the world.
Yes. The WORLD.
The map, which is updated regularly, uses Google Maps to search and access Wi-Fi passwords from over 130 airports.
Not only does WiFox show Wi-Fi networks and passwords, you can also find out specific locations of lounges, restaurants, and even a list of Internet hotspots!
You simply click an airport on the map to see both the password and the Wi-Fi spot. Like this:
Polat is also aware of concerns by airport-goers who experience Wi-Fi connections with a time limit. So he designed the map in a way that detects such limitations and instructs users on how to extend their Internet usage.
With the help of crowd-sourcing, WiFox allows users to share password changes whenever discovered, which will be verified before it is officially available on the map.
Besides the interactive version of the map, the WiFox app is also available in iOS, Android and Google Play.
Now we can all enjoy free airport Wi-Fi around the globe without worrying about draining our mobile data and dying of boredom before a flight. Thanks, Polat!
