WiFi getting connected automatically, more so if the connection requires filling out OTPs or web forms, is something that never fails to light up the face of a user with pure delight. For those of who haven’t used WiFire, this might sound surprising – but WiFire fills out your webforms and OTPs all by itself! In fact, we have had many users write to us saying that it is one of their favourite features in the app. How they loved the fact that they could connect to free airport WiFi or Railwire WiFi (which is now available at 50 railway stations across India) in one tap without having to spend a whole lot of time trying to fill a webform that would just keep reloading half the time.
And, so we lived thinking all is good with the world. But not for long. For it hit us pretty soon that not all webforms are created equal.
Say you try to log in to a captive WiFi network (eg: Cyberoam) in a college campus. The fields that you are required to fill up in the webform (eg: Registration ID, Roll number etc.) will vary from the fields that are asked of you when you try to log in to a public WiFi network at your office (eg: User ID, Employee ID etc.).
And, given the length of these webforms, they are an equal pain to fill up as well. I can see that your blood is already boiling just at the very thought of having to go through it.
But fret not, for WiFire is here. That’s right, once again WiFire comes to the rescue.
With WiFire you can now make your way through all kinds of webforms in a flash. All it takes is just one tap and you will be online on any public WiFi network.
Excited much? Well, let’s take a look at the steps involved in the same.
Say you are looking to connect to a WiFi network named ‘ICSR’ at the IIT Madras college campus. Here’s all that you got to do:
1) Open the WiFire app and click on the ‘Login to ICSR’ button below ‘ICSR’ network.
2) You will be immediately re-directed to a login page, where you can go ahead and type in your username and password.
3) Once you hit the ‘Log in’ button, you will receive a message asking if you want WiFire to save your login details. Clicking on the ‘Save’ button will save you the trouble of having to type in all your details every time you try to login to the WiFi network (which is practically the first thing you will end up doing as soon as you open your eyes to a new morning at the college campus, all through those 4 years at IITM).
4) Next, you will be taken to a page asking you to approve your IP address for proxy-less access to the internet. Click on the ‘approve’ button in this message.
5) Next, you will be taken to a page asking you to authorize the machine for proxy-less access to the internet. Click on the ‘Authorize’ button at the end of this webpage.
6) After this you will be taken to the home page on the WiFire app indicating that you have been connected to the ICSR network.
7) The next time you want to log in to the ‘ICSR’ network, you can simply click on the ‘Login to ICSR’ button below the network.
8) You will find yourself connected to the ICSR WiFi network in just a few seconds.
No more of having to deal with typing in a million login details again and again or having to remember your password by heart. With WiFire you can now stay connected in just a tap across all kind sof public WiFi networks.
Once again WiFire saves the day.
