Free Access to 30 Million WiFi Hotspots

Someone posted the same question while I was restarting. However, nobody foresaw to mention this in the post and it should be updated to reflect this lest others encounter this too…


#23

Great point by @yavanius, I looked and could not find that information.


#24

As posted below, there is a sever load issue with many folks trying to activate this feature currently.
Due to todays email blast on the feature.

Hi @yavanius and @edwardl.aj46n7, and others whose circle won’t stop spinning -

If you wait more than 10 minutes and the circle continues to spin, please open a ticket. Our engineers are working to balance the server load, but we will want to monitor the spinning circles for members impacted as that load levels off.


#26

What I’m seeing is that when I try to enable the feature, I get a brief (less than a second) “spin” circle, and then it just goes back to the switch, which is still off. Is this symptom also due to the servers?


#27

I’m seeing the same thing.


#28

OK, so I’m guessing the best thing to do is try again tomorrow!


#29

I get the very same. I try to activate switch, but id immediately reverts to off. Moto G4 Play

Map??? What Map??? Don’t see No Map…


#31

Yes, @flarewatcher. If everyone could just wait and not try to enable it at the same time, it will definitely be much easier for everyone.


#32

Mine too. I get a quick (less than a second) “spin” circle and reverts back to off.
Is this part of the server load issue or something else?

All part of the issue.


#34

How secure are these wifi hotspots?


#35

When I try to enable this feature, it “spins” for a few moments, and then stops with the feature still disabled, and no message whatsoever about why it won’t turn on. Version of Rep App is 3.20.3.4. I would very much like to use this feature since my plan is My Choice T&T with no cell data.


#36

Republic is aware of the issue. From a few posts above yours:

Not turning on at all is related but for those there’s no need to open a ticket. Simply try again tomorrow when the issue should be resolved.


#37

How safe are these “verified” hotspots, and i have an older phone, app 2.1…2311, will this be beneficial to us, loyal old guys?


#38

The feature will not be offered on the older (Moto X1, X2, G1, G3, E1, E2 and Defy XT) phones.


#39

will it work with the motot e4?


#40

Yes. All but the legacy phones (Moto X1, X2, G1, G3, E1, E2 and Defy XT).


#41

What about security? Will I be opening myself up to hacks if I use these random hotspots?
