Before we take a look at the Best Hotspot apps, let us first take a look at a common problem faced by users who are trying to access public hotspots.

How to Solve WiFi HotSpot Login Page Loading Error on iPhone

If you’re unable to get the Login Page to load on your iPhone, just use this trick to get it up and running.

  • Go to the Wi-Fi network (Hotspot) that you want to connect to
  • Tap on the info button (i button)
  • You will be able to see the ‘Router IP Address’
  • Copy that and paste it into your Browser

The Wi-Fi Login page will now open. However, if you surf around or open any page on your browser, the screen should pop up too. But, this method is the fool-proof method if your Wifi Login Page is not loading.

Now, let’s get into the Best Apps for Hotspot on iPhone.

1. WiFi Map

This is my favorite one, the map feature in this app is just awesome! The first and foremost useful feature is the VPN feature. That means you can safely connect with public Wi-Fi networks and hotspots without having to worry about any kind of attack on personal information. 

It comes with a list (that’s why, Wi-Fi Map) of Wi-Fi networks with their ID and passwords from around the world.   

To make it easier to find these hotspots, there is a handy map that loads offline too.

Pros:

  • Offline maps
  • ID & password database
  • VPN
  • Monitor data usage
  • Speed test
  • Security test

2. Speedify

Using the channel bonding technology, Speedify will connect with more than one Wi-Fi network and use the fastest one to connect to the Internet. That means you will receive the best bandwidth always.

You will be protected against cyber attacks that are so commonly carried out by hackers via public Wi-Fi hotspots if you’re using the VPN. 

Pros:

  • VPN protects against attacks on Public Wi-Fis
  • Saves the bandwidth

Cons:

  • Reliability on Connection

2. OpenSignal

Open Signal is an open-source app designed to search for the best signal. The OpenSignal Community is very active. Here, you can also scan for hotspots in the area. 

You can check your network speed in this app too.  

All the cell towers of available telecom companies have been plotted a map that opens in Google or Apple Maps (as per your default Map App setting). You can view the location of these towers and hotspots on the map, or simply follow the circle. 

Pros:

  • Provides Locations of Towers using Google Maps / Apple Maps
  • You can check locations of Hotspots
  • You can check the Network Speed
  • It supports Google Maps

We are not able to share any Wi-Fi Hotspot while using VPN on iOS due to restrictions placed on the software by Apple. Hence, these apps are very useful for maintaining safety while on any other network.
