This unique map called WiFox shows free WiFi spots along with their passwords for airport passengers so you can kill time before the flight.
You know when you miss your flight or when there is a delay in the flight, and there is nothing you can do but sit at the airport and wait for your turn? That is the time you may want to connect to the publicly available airport WiFi, but the network is either insecure or asks for your credit card information for paid packages.
Well, look no further, we have a free solition for you. Now there is an interactive map that shows usernames and passwords of WiFi connections for almost all airports around the world in plain-text. Yes, an IT security researcher and travel blogger Anil Polat has created a unique map called WiFox for passengers to find WiFi passwords so you can kill time before your flight.
The map is updated on a regular basis where new airports are added each day. Once a user clicks on the desired airport the map displays the airport’s name, network name and password.
We tried clicking on Oslo airport where everyone gets two hours free WiFi, but as the map says all you have to do is put in a .edu email address and you have unlimited access. Neat, isn’t it? Just click on the airplane icon one by one to view login details.
Dear readers, please remember that using a public or open WiFi connection is not something that is recommended. In theory, all the data on your phone and any connected device, computer, and service can be accessed by a malicious actor. At a minimum, you should always run a VPN on your device. In this case, use the Tor Onion Browser or VPN like IPVanish VPN.
Enjoy your secure and free WiFi. Safe travels!
