Seamless, Secure Passpoint Connectivity Now Available for Windows 10


Windows device users, rejoice! Available today, the new Windows 10 OS will make connecting to Wi-Fi simple, secure and seamless through support of the revolutionary Passpoint Wi-Fi protocols.

For those who haven’t gotten the Passpoint 411, this new technology has the power to connect users with enabled devices to Wi-Fi networks with no user action required. Passpoint finds and connects to Passpoint-enabled Wi-Fi signals automatically. No more trying to find a signal, and login screens are a thing of the past.

Passpoint is a free service to users with Boingo account credentials, and offers a host of other benefits:

  • It’s secure. Passpoint offers built-in security, authenticating users onto WPA2 encrypted connections. Or in layman’s terms: the networks enable an enterprise-level secure connection, with no VPNs needed.
  • It’s faster. It often delivers better speeds than “traditional” hotspots.
  • It’s your new travel tool. Boingo offers automatic Passpoint connectivity at more than 25 airports, plus nearly 100,000 Passpoint-enabled hotspots worldwide, helping you stay connected to fast Wi-Fi on the go.
  • It’s available on your favorite devices. Passpoint works on most late model iOS and OSX devices (and now Windows 10 devices, of course). Android support is coming soon!
  • It’s free! Did we mention it’s completely free for folks with a Boingo account?

You can activate any number of devices on your Boingo account here. Setup takes just a few seconds, and voila! You’ll be experiencing the next generation of connectivity on your favorite Windows 10 device.

We’ve already been hearing good things about all the other brand spanking new Windows 10 features. Check out the positive reviews from The Wall Street Journal and USA Today.
