Introducing Secure WiFi Sharing, Network Syncing and more

Introducing Wifire 3.14

In our endeavour to make WiFi as reliable and ubiquitous as bottled water, we are excited to announce WiFire 3.14 (we have nicknamed it WiFire ‘π’). This new version is power packed with great new features, that will make your experience of using the app all the more fun!

So what are these features, and why should you care? Without much ado, let’s dive into what’s new:

1.Share WiFi privately: With this new version of WiFire you can share your WiFi with friends and family without sharing passwords! How many times has an old aunt visiting you asked for your WiFi password? Didn’t the very thought of wording out your password send a shudder down your spine? You know what I mean 😉

Well, we have you sorted now. With WiFire you can simply text a link to anyone you want to share your network with, and that’s it. Your WiFi network remains private and is shared 1-on-1 with only those friends and family who have received your link. It is not made available to the general public.

Share network securely

2.Sync ‘favorite’ networks: You can now favorite your most frequented networks, and connect to these networks even if your 3G data or location services is turned off. Use WiFire to save all your WiFi networks to your profile and have them available on any device you log into. No need to type WiFi passwords into each device you own!

3.Check WiFi speed and rate your favorite networks: Now you can check the Internet connection speed at any WiFi hotspot, and rate that network. Not only will you know if there is a public WiFi hotspot nearby, but also how fast it is and what fellow users think of that network. Isn’t that awesome?

With this update, we make it possible to connect not only to over 3,500 public WiFire hotspots, but also to your friend’s WiFi with a single tap.

WiFire on Android is transforming public WiFi experiences and the app will shortly be available on iOS as well.

Introducing WiFire 2.0

We’re excited to announce version 2.0 of WiFire, which features a new and improved design that makes it even easier to connect to free WiFi around you. 

Upon opening the app, you will now see everything you need in one simple dashboard. The number of shared WiFi networks nearby (within a 3 km radius) is listed on top of a map preview, which you can tap to see an interactive map of shared WiFi hotspots in your neighbourhood.

Below that, you can see the current WiFi network you are connected to, if any. If this is a public network that is not yet in our database, you can share its password with the WiFire community and earn a WiFi Saviour badge for your help! If it is a private network, you can now save it as your home or work network, and it will not be shared with anyone.
