  • September 3, 2021

How to spot Wi-fi hotspots and networks with a quick Google search.

The internet is full of hotspots, and Google is here to help you find the ones you need.

To find hotspots: Click the Wi-Fibre icon at the top of the homepage, and then select ‘Find hotspots’.

Search for a specific network (for example, ‘Tethering network’).

Search for the network you’re looking for (in this case, ‘Verizon WiFi’).

Select ‘Wi-Fi Hotspot’ and then ‘Find networks’.

Once you find a network, tap the ‘Open’ button and you’ll see an icon that says ‘Open network’.

You can then tap that icon to ‘Open hotspot’, then tap ‘Connect’ to ‘connect’ to the hotspot you want.

If you’re not sure whether the network is available, tap ‘Show’ or ‘Open’.

In the ‘Connect to Wi-FI hotspot’ window, tap and hold the ‘T’ button on your device to open a new tab.

Tap ‘WiFi Hotspots’ to open the Wi‑Fi hotspots list.

Tap on the network name and click ‘Connect’.

In this window, you’ll be able to view a list of all the Wi–Fi hotspots in the network, or search for them by typing in their name or IP address.

You can also search for a network by typing its name or address, or by clicking on the ‘View Network Info’ icon at top of each hotspot.

Tap the ‘Search for hotspots’ button to see a list containing all the hotspots in the Wi‐Fi network.

Tap any of the hotspits to open its properties.

You’ll see all the network information, including the location of each Wi‑Fibres network and the MAC address of each.

You also can see the Wi­Fi network’s security settings, including network encryption, and whether or not the hotsprings are private.

Tap a hotspot to see how much data is in that hotspot, how long it has been running and how long the hotsplits have been online.

You may also want to check out the Wi−Fi hotspnet speed.

You should see a speed bar that indicates the maximum data speed the hotspnets are currently capable of.

You might also want an option to save the hotspinned data for later.
