iPass offers convenient Wi-Fi connections to a global network of hotspots making it easy for you to access a Wi-Fi hotspot when you need to get online.

With iPass you bypass the complications of connecting to Wi-Fi.

Toggle this I'm at a hotspot and cannot connect. What do I do?

Poor Wi-Fi signal strength is the most common cause of connection failure. Walls, windows and other obstacles can reduce signal strength. Check your device signal strength indicator (number of bars) to see if you have a good signal and try moving if possible to improve your signal strength before attempting to connect.

Also, some non-iPass Wi-Fi hotspots share a name (SSID) with valid iPass hotspots. Insure you are at a valid iPass hotspot by making sure your location is in the hotspot finder.
