How does the Last Mile VPN work?
Insecure Wi-Fi connections are the key points of entry for man-in-the-middle attacks, packet sniffing, identity spoofing, and other security risks and privacy erosions.
The Last Mile VPN feature is available with our iPass Global Wi-Fi solution and delivers global hotspot security, where the end user is most vulnerable: between the user and the Internet gateway. With three layers of security we keep the connection secure.

When I install the software on my Windows laptop I get an error like, ‘This is not a valid windows installer package’ or about ‘data1.cab’ files.
These problems happen when you attempt to install the software on your Windows laptop, but the file has not yet finished downloading. Please wait until the download has completed before installing the software.
I am having problems connecting to Wi-Fi? What should I do?
Ensure your Wi-Fi is on and the signal strength, shown in bars, is high. Depending on your device, you can either see the signal strength in your Wi-Fi settings or in the iPass app itself. If it is low, try changing your location or ask a member of the staff at the venue to show you where the nearest access point is, so you can move closer.Then make sure that it is an iPass location, with the iPass icon next to the name, or the network name on your iPhone or iPad. If not, then try the Hotspot finder to find the nearest location.When you try to connect and there is a problem, the app should alert you as to you’re not able to connect and inform you what you can do. Sometimes, your app may say it is somewhere you can use iPass, but you might have problems connecting. If so, the hotspot is not setup correctly. If you are still having problems, you can always report a problem, by sending details when you are connected. We will determine what happened.
I’m at a hotspot and cannot connect. What do I do?
A poor Wi-Fi signal strength is the most common cause of connection failures. Walls, windows and other obstacles can reduce signal strength. Check your device’s signal strength indicator (number of bars) to see if you have a good signal, and try moving closer to the access point if possible to improve your signal strength before attempting to connect. Also, some non-iPass-enabled Wi-Fi hotspots share a name (SSID) with valid iPass hotspots. Check if you are at a valid iPass hotspot by looking up your location in the hotspot finder.
I have just landed at the airport, and I found an iPass-enabled hotspot. However, I do not seem to be able to get a good connection.
Please check first that your Wi-Fi is enabled, and your device is no longer set to flight mode/airplane mode.As traffic at an iPass hotspot is shared by all users during peak hours, the speed may be slower than usual.
My session inflight was cut-off
Some aircrafts have session limits of 30 minutes activated. Meaning you may need to connect again after 30 minutes of usage.
Also please note the Fair Usage Policy of 1GB inflight wifi/user/month, may trigger user suspension for the rest of the month. This is indicated in the iPass app. If you are unsure or need further information please contact customer support email@example.com or use the chat bar.
