Free WiFi connection is a dream for everyone, thanks to the social media platforms keeping us addicted to the Internet. If you are one of those people who want to keep in touch with friends and family at all costs there is an app called “Instabridge” providing its users with free WiFi access.
The app uses a list of user-submitted WiFi connections to let others access them for free. So far, thousands of network credentials have been added to the database so it is very likely that you could find a network near to you and join it for free.
How does it work?
Here’s what you need to do to access the password-protected WiFi through Instabridge.
Install Instabridge on your device. This app is available for smartphone devices as well as for Mac and Windows computers.
Set up your preferences and add a Mobile number. It must be noted that when you first install the app, you will have to complete the installation process by setting up your preferences and adding your mobile number. Adding a mobile number is not a mandatory step, and you can skip it, but if you want to share your WiFi network details with your friends, then you have to add a number.
To complete the installation process, you will need to enter your WiFi credentials (If you have one). Don’t worry, your WiFi connection will only be shared with your friends, and you can manually edit the selection if you want.
Now that the installation process is done, it’s time to have some fun. The main screen of the app will allow you to discover nearby wi-fi connections. You will see Pink dots, which means that the WiFi connection is open and you can connect to it, while a gray dot means that the connection is restricted or requires payment.
All you need to do is just connect to the Pink dot Wi-fi connection and enjoy.
The app is available on Google Play and Apple Store which means it works on both Android and iPhone devices. However, it is highly recommended that whenever connecting to a public WiFi spot make sure to use a VPN software like IPVanish or anonymity service like Tor to protect your online privacy.
