Recognizing the "WiFi GO" logo

One can easily use the free Wi-Fi Internet service anywhere the "WiFi GO" logo can be seen.

 

The safety differences between the two SSIDs

When searching for the "WiFi GO" Wi-Fi signal, one would find two SSIDs, "wifigo" and "wifigo-s". The differences between the two are as follows:

"wifigo" is an unencrypted wireless network, open to all Wi-Fi capable devices. Data shall not be encrypted during transmission.

"wifigo-s" is an encrypted wireless network, open to all Wi-Fi capable devices supporting WPA2 encryption protocol. Data shall be encrypted during transmission.

 

Avoid transmitting vital information and doing financial service transaction through public wireless networks

Since "WiFi GO" is an open public wireless network, one should not disclose vital or personal data (e.g. credit card information, online banking passwords, etc.), transmit such data and conduct financial service transaction via this network.

 

Post-connection usage tip

Once the browser successfully logins to the "WiFi GO" service, it will automatically be forwarded to the "WiFi GO" portal page. The portal page provides the latest local information, as well as links to various government services.

 

Aware of automatic network switching capability

 In the event the user is out of the coverage area or encounter radio interference when using the “WiFi GO” service, the "WiFi GO" connection will automatically be disconnected. Some mobile phones and portable devices may automatically switch over to PAID mobile data services (such as GPRS, 3G and 4G). Users must be aware of this scenario in order to prevent unnecessary loss.

 

Safety tips for wireless Internet access

To ensure the proper and correct use of "WiFi GO", the government has established appropriate security measures. Nonetheless, users should still follow the necessary security settings on their mobile devices, such as installing personal firewalls, anti-virus software with latest updates, as well as the latest security patches. Also, the users should keep private and sensitive data on their mobile devices encrypted.
