The Wi-Fi-FreeSpot Directory does not list private, residential locations ( except for vacation rental properties where access is included in the rental fee ), only publicly accessible locations. Although many home owners and renters have chosen to leave their wireless in an open unsecured state that can be freely accessed by their neighbors and passersby, the location is not accessible to the public for entry. Cafes, libraries and the other locations listed in the Wi-Fi-FreeSpot Directory can be entered by the public, even though they may choose to access the signal from outside if possible.

Efforts are made to insure that the information contained in the Wi-Fi-FreeSpot Directory is accurate. But, occasionally you may find that a listed location does not offer Free Wi-Fi access at your time of visit. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to location owners and visitors. When possible, it is best to check with the location in advance of your visit.

In airports in particular beware of networks named "Free Wi-Fi" or a similar name, it's an ad hoc, peer-to-peer network, possibly set up as a trap by someone with a laptop nearby.
    Some locations may require a purchase to get the login info required to connect.
    Some locations may have SafeSurf type software installed that will restrict access to some web sites.
    Don't expect to get much support help from the staff, they're waitresses or baristas, etc., not tech support people. Some may not even know it exists.
    Don't expect to find many plugs. Make sure your battery is charged or bring a spare.
    Some locations will not allow outgoing e-mail to be sent via their SMTP server. Use a web based e-mail account if you need to send e-mail while in this type of free location.
