iPass Global Wi-Fi Service
How do I connect to an iPass-enabled hotspot?
It is extremely easy to connect to iPass-enabled hotspots. Enabled Wi-Fi networks are indicated with a network indication (iOS) or iPass-icon in the app (Android/Windows/Mac). iOS users need a one-time network “association” to subsequently automatically connect to the network. With Android, Windows and Mac connections are fully automatic. You can enable or disable automatic connections in the settings of the app and client.
Do I need to enter usernames and/or password to connect to the Wi-Fi hotspots?
No. This is taken care of in the background by the app and you will be connected automatically.
In some cases when using Inflight services that has not been upgraded by the wi-fi provider you may need to sign in using a web browser. More information available in the Inflight FAQ here.
Will it always work?
We wish, but that is utopia unfortunately! Reality is that with more than 68 millions hotspots around the globe, there will be a malfunctioning hotspot here and there. If you stumble across a bad hotspots, please don’t hesitate to let us know, so we can have it fixed by our providers. We are also monitoring the global network proactively so that we can offer the best available Wi-Fiquality to our customers.
Can I still connect outside the iPass Global Wi-Fi system to other Wi-Fi networks?
Yes, the apps will only connect to iPass-enabled networks. You home or work Wi-Fi network usually has higher priority so it will not affect connecting to those networks. If the app stumbles upon a bad hotspot, it will go to the background after a few connectivity attempts. If you want to manually exclude networks you can set that in the settings of the app.
Can I suggest a location or Wi-Fi provider you should work with to improve your coverage?
Yes Please! We are constantly striving to provide the best network coverage possible on locations where our customers travel to. If you come across popular Wi-Fi networks or locations which are not iPass-enabled yet, let us know so we can try to include them in our footprint.
