A Pretty Great Airport Wifi Hack

If you travel for work or leisure, then you probably spend a lot of time at airports, but airport public wifi can be pretty dangerous..

It’s generally not a good idea to connect your computer or phone to an open, public wifi, especially one that's in a heavily crowded area like an airport. But sometimes you’ve got long layovers and need to go online. Plus, you don't want to drain your phone’s battery from all that cellular connectivity.

Not to mention, if you’re travelling abroad, you may not even have a network connection, so you have no choice but to use the airports wifi. Well as it turns out, there is a completely free, open source airport wifi list where users share passwords for the various secured networks at airports around the world. Read on to learn more..

A Pretty Great Airport Wifi Hack

Pretty crazy concept, right? Basically people who are airline sky members, or have access to those exclusive lounge wifi networks, have gone and shared login credentials for those exclusive networks. It’s kinda like sharing your Netflix account with someone. The best part? This list is actively updated by community members, so there's constantly new networks and credentials being shared.

Here’s a link to where you can view these wireless networks.

To use it the list, all you have to do is select the search icon (magnifying glass) near the top left, and search for the airport you'll be staying in. When it loads, it will tell you all the various networks that you can connect to, as well as instructions for how to connect. In my travels (I have a few remote jobs), I've had great luck tapping into these networks for connectivity
