Does Popwifi connect me automatically to all Wi-Fi networks?
iPhone users: You’ll need to teach your device to use Wi-Fi at Popwifi places, by opening up ‘Settings’ at the Wi-Fi screen. Look for networks with ‘Popwifi’ underneath the Wi-Fi network name and tap to connect. You only need to do this once for each Wi-Fi network.

What is a Wall?
A Wall is like a virtual message board or guestbook for any real-life, physical place. Most of these places are businesses or public buildings which share their Wi-Fi for free with customers, visitors and guests. At Popwifi, we figured a place that shared its Wi-Fi with you would really benefit from a ‘digital space’ where anyone using the network could talk and interact. Hence the Wall, which works like a social network but is specific to a physical place and its Wi-Fi.
How do I find a venue’s Wall?
When you connect to Wi-Fi in a venue, Popwifi will let you know there’s a Wall for you to use; you just have to tap the notification to reach it. If the Wall has never been used before, you could be the first person to post on it! The Popwifi app may ask you to tell us something about the venue; for example, confirming the details we have for it. Although most Popwifi places are businesses and intended for public use (meaning they will appear in the ‘Nearby’ view to users at other venues) a wall at a private location like a home or office can be marked private. This means it can only be seen by users who can access that particular Wi-Fi network.
