WiFire recently got featured in the Economic Times Panache as “an app that is a boon for anyone constantly searching for wi-fi hotspots”. The article starts off by taking note of the issues faced by users in general with respect to mobile data.
“For a lot of users, running into the monthly data limit is quite common. Then there are the travellers who might end up paying even more for data, thanks to roaming costs” notes the article. It then goes on to talk about how WiFire helps users deal with this by addressing the root cause behind this – lack of access to free public WiFi hotspots around them.
The blog recommends both the iOS and Android app and talks about how simple it is to connect to free WiFi in India, using the app – users can simply scroll around on the map to find more WiFi hotspots around them. The blog also talks about how “each hotspot is marked with a flag, showing you a distance from your current location and name”.
The article then tops it up with one of experiences that has never failed to put a smile of the face of our users – the auto login feature that connects users to hotspots operated by RailWire, Tata Docomo, Ozone, BSNL and Reliance Jio in one tap.
WiFire currently helps users discover and connect to 6000+ free public WiFi hotspots across India – including airports, all railway stations that offer RailTel’s Railwire WiFi, Starbucks, Mc Donald’s and loads of cafes and restaurants.

WiFire was recently featured in NDTV’s Gadgets360 for its work in connecting users to free public WiFi hotspots across India. The article talks about how cellular networks in India can be quite unreliable at times and in such cases, a great solution could be connecting to free public WiFi hotspots,while on the go. This is not an easy task in itself. And while there are a few apps that do the same thing, this is what the article has to say: “There are plenty of apps that do the same thing but some are spammy, some are scammy, and many of them don’t have a great database of Wi-Fi networks in India. WiFire is not like those apps.”
The blog reviews both the Android and the iOS app and talks about how simple it is to connect to free WiFi in India, using the app. “We also tested the app at the airport – the Wi-Fi network there needs you to log in with an OTP, and WiFire actually lets you automate this whole process. That part was pretty great” is what it had to say about connecting to WiFi at airports. In the end, the article also mentions who could benefit most from the app: “This app could be very useful for people visiting India from other countries, particularly those who don’t have a local SIM.”

Here at WiFire, we’re striving to enable seamless Internet connectivity for users wherever they go. We believe that, with the growing popularity of mobile phones and public WiFi hotspots, connecting to the Internet while on-the-go should be quick, easy and affordable.
We aim to make reliable public WiFi as accessible as possible, but we realize that our users still often access the Internet via 3G/4G in their day-to-day lives. Many people burn through their data packs without knowing it, allowing mobile apps that aren’t even in use to make requests to use the Internet.
The culprits are common—news aggregators, social networking apps, among others—and the solution is simple, but the issue is largely going unaddressed for most users.
Today we are excited to announce our new widget and in-app feature called DataWall, which both allow users to have more control over their mobile data usage and make their data pack last longer. The widget is available for all Android devices, and DataWall is available on Android version 5.0 and above.
Let’s dive into how these two features work within the new-and-improved WiFire design:
WiFire was recently featured in YourStory for its work in connecting users to free public WiFi hotspots across India. The article explains how, through crowdsourcing rather than hacking, our app’s growing database is helping people to connect to WiFi at thousands of verified networks across the country.
The post delves into the background of our parent company MobStac, explaining how the app fits in with our core proximity marketing product. It also reviews WiFire’s current features and discusses our plans for the future.
WiFire on Android is transforming public WiFi experiences and the app will shortly be available on iOS as well. Sign up as a beta tester and experience an exclusive preview of WiFire on iOS.
