How to Connect to Wi-Fi

After Open Mobile is installed, it works in the background with Windows to connect users to hundreds of thousands of iPass hotspots around the world. The user simply connects to an iPass Wi-Fi hotspot using Windows 8, and iPass authenticates in the background.


Open the Settings options by swiping your finger from the right edge of the screen or holding the cursor on the top-right corner of the screen (if you are using a mouse) until the Windows Charm appears, and then, tap or click Settings. The following options will appear:

  • Travel Preferences
  • Account
  • About
  • Update
  • Help
  • Replace Profile
  • Advanced Settings
  • Privacy Policy
  • Permissions
  • Rate and review

For details on the settings options listed above, please see the Settings help page.
