WiFi Map is a location-based application that helps users find shared and free WiFi nearby.

Sharing and Finding free WiFi

WiFi Map is designed as a tool to build a community where people help each other out. The WiFi connections are crowdsourced. In the app, members can share their WiFi password voluntarily. The passwords are stored in the application's database. Then, other users can use their phones’ GPS to find those free WiFi connections.

Features and Usage

WiFi Map has more than 100 million hotspots worldwide. It is everywhere. Europe, America, Asia, Africa, and Australia -- all of these continents have WiFi Map hotspots. The application is available in around 60 languages.

WiFi Map provides real-time maps, so users can easily find the nearest free hotspot. Each WiFi hotspot comes with the password and comments, so users know what to expect. WiFi Map also has a social share feature to share on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. There is a leaderboard showing scores of different hotspots to incentivize the members who share their WiFi passwords.

The application can be a lifesaver for travelers. Wireless data transfer costs can be high in foreign countries. So using free WiFi can save you a lot of money. But before connecting to a hotspot, read the comments to make sure it has a good reputation.

Conclusion

WiFi Map is a manifestation of the sharing economy. The application makes it easier to share access to the internet. It’s a light-weight app that provides a great service to the community. Anyone who is traveling should take advantage of this great application.
