One of the most common practices of travelers just landed, is to find to connect to the internet. However, that is not always so simple, because not all airports have an open signal.
For this reason, a traveler blogger set out to gather the internet accesses of the world’s major airports and make them available to users on his blog.
Anil Polat is who began to note the access to the WiFi networks of the various airports he was visiting. Soon, he had the idea to add to his list the access passwords of the lounges of the different airlines.
The ingenious blogger and computer security engineer who writes FoXnoMad created WiFox, a map of airport WiFi and lounge passwords from around the world that’s updated in real-time with information verified from other travelers, pilots, and reliable sources.
The Foxnomad.com website says the hotspot information includes the airport, location in the airport or lounge, network name, password, plus any other details that might help you get online (e.g. “sit next to gate 47 for the strongest signal”).
All of the information is verified before being approved to the map – plus you can submit password changes as you discover them.
Users can also add passwords they find from airports around the world. Those passwords are then sent to FoXnoMad for verification and approval before they are added to the map.
WiFox icons indicate how fresh, reliable, and highly rated a given airport wireless network’s information is.
And best, the map is available offline so you don’t need an Internet connection to use WiFox when you’re traveling.
