Updated on January 23, 2018

Millions of Free WiFi Spots!

There are millions of free and open wifi networks all over this world. They are here for you when you want them and need them the most.

We know now that the unlimited data trend is slowly disappearing as you may saw the announcements or heard about Verizon shutting off your phone service for reaching a certain amount of data usage. This is so unfair and not good at all for those of you who love to stay connected to their loved ones the most.

So I am here to help you out through these rough changes and times that are coming and that you wanting to avoid because of the effects of being unable to stay connected online.

We all know wifi exist and that it is nothing new at all. At first, we were all just on our laptops or PDAs at one point in time at the local coffee shops or in libraries and Star Bucks and even Barnes and Noble connecting to the Wifi hotspots surfing the world wide web. In the early years, we didn't have tablets or smartphones or iPhones to connect to the internet with for our own personal uses to kill time in lines while waiting to dine out, at the checkout or to even just socialize. Data wasn't even the situation then. Data is the situation now. For the good and bad. But why? Why is having a data plan such a huge deal and a MUST? Why aren't a lot of consumers not aware of Open Wifi HotSpots? Why is Unlimited Data becoming the dead-end? Change is in the air. The new technologies are getting faster but seem a little restricted in some cases. There are a lot of users online and not all are using a lot of data or even have a data plan. So this is for those users who don't use a lot of data or that may want to use lesser data and save tons of money on their phone bills and data plans. In the next sections, I will be discussing some mobile apps that will connect you and alert you about free Wifi access in the world around you.

In most Android phones, the Wifi settings are found in the quick settings toggle at the top of the phone in status bar. This is the fastest way to getting to the Wifi settings. Another way is by going to the settings app manually and clicking on the WiFi settings tab. But either way is fine.
