Does AutoWiFi work with iOS6?


Apple has fixed the missing Auto-Login toggle in the latest versions of iOS 6.1. Please update to use AutoWiFi again.


With iOS 5.1 and above you need to disable “Auto-Login” in the iOS device Wi-Fi settings. To do so open the Settings app, tap Wi-Fi, and the blue arrow icon on the right, and turn off Auto-Login.  Now connect to the network.


The correct set up looks like this -->


AutoWiFI will now be able to see your network and learn to use it by watching you log in (if you already logged in, log out and then launch AutoWiFi)


I launch AutoWiFi and I get a “No WiFi Connection” or “You are already connected” message. Whats wrong?

Will AutoWiFi work with my hotspot/WLAN/WiFi network?


Below you can read what your network can and cannot do for it to work with AutoWiFi. But instead of reading the technical details, you can try it out yourself before purchasing by downloading AutoWiFi Lite from the App Store free of charge.


AutoWiFi supports nearly all hotspots that use web authentication (thats those hotspots where when you try to surf you are shown a web page where you have to enter your username and password first). In more technical detail this means the hotspot needs to:


  1. Use web authentication via a form

  2. Allow you to connect using the same username and password each time

  3. Complete the authentication process in one step (pages where you enter your username on one page and your password on a second page won’t work)






Why do I have to launch AutoWiFi? Can’t it launch automatically when I use such a hotspot?

Apple does not allow 3rd party programmers to write programs that run in the background. As such AutoWiFi cannot remain in the background and do the authentication for you completely automatically, you will still need to launch AutoWiFi. We have made AutoWiFi as automatic as possible though, once launched you won’t even have to click a thing, AutoWiFi will automatically connect you.


Which hotspots are not supported?

Based on user feed back hotspots which use the following features are currently not supported.

  1. A multi page log in system where you have to enter part of the data on one page and another part on another page, or accept the terms and conditions on a different page than the login page.


We are working on adding support for such networks too.


Is AutoWiFi being actively developed?

We are listening to user feed back via email and adding features and fixing problems. You can see the version history here.
