WiFi users, prepare for a revolutionized experience with new Passpoint technology from Boingo Wireless. Available at more than 20 nationwide airports, Passpoint offers instant, simple and secure wireless services to users.
At most WiFi hotspots, a user must search for and choose a network, launch a browser, and finally log in on a redirect page. Passpoint streamlines that entire process, so the moment someone steps in to a venue with a Passpoint-enabled network, they are instantly online. Secure Passpoint networks are launching all across the world and will one day be the standard for getting online.
Get started by installing a Boingo Passpoint profile. Once registered, devices automatically recognize Passpoint Secure networks and log users onto the network. It could not be simpler — no more pop-ups, websites or log-in screens with username/password requests, and no need to access special apps on phones or tablets.
Most importantly, the new technology offers a safe and secure connection. Ease-of-use and integrated enterprise-class security eliminate the need for special apps, VPNs and web browser log-ins. Passpoint networks provide an enterprise-class secure connection so no VPNs are needed.
Passpoint is currently supported on the world’s most popular mobile devices — including iPhone 5, 5S, 5C and the iPad, and Samsung Galaxy phones (S4, S5) and tablets, as well as dozens of other devices, such as Apple MacBooks running OS X 10.9.
Boingo monthly subscribers with unlimited WiFi accounts can download the Passpoint profile and access Boingo Passpoint networks at no additional costs. The world’s biggest WiFi providers are expected to launch more Passpoint networks later this year, which will allow cross-carrier roaming. One account with a company like Boingo will give you seamless access to hundreds of thousands of hotspots as more networks launch. Boingo locations with Passpoint Secure networks include more than 20 airports serving a half-billion passengers a year.
