Find Hotspots

Open Mobile includes a hotspot finder that enables users to locate iPass Wi-Fi hotspots anywhere in the world. Users can enter a location (address, city, zip code, or airport code) in the search box or use the list of nearby hotspots. By tapping on a hotspot location on the list, users can reach a picture of the hotspot location along with the option to receive GPS directions.

The steps below describe the general process of how the hotspot finder works, while illustrating features and functions.

Users can use the search fields to look for specific hotspots by:
