QUESTIONS ABOUT WI-FREE

Does Wi-Free affect my private network's performance?

No. Your private network remains full speed. The additional Internet performance required for Wi-Free is provided by UPC.

Forgot your Wi-Free password?

You can reset your Wi-Free password at any time on My UPC under "My Products" / "Internet" / "Wi-Free".

Who can use Wi-Free?

Anyone with a Wi-Free password can access Wi-Free at any hotspot.

Which devices can I use Wi-Free on?

Any devices with a wifi receiver - iPhones, iPads, Android/Windows phones and tablets, Macs and PCs.

How secure is Wi-Free?

No one can see the traffic that is carried over Wi-Free.

Wi-Free has the same security level as your private wireless network. It uses WPA2 encryption. The security of your private wireless network is not compromised by Wi-Free.

Internet use is always the responsibility of the individual user. They are responsible for their own actions and can be held accountable for them. The owner of a Wi-Free location is not responsible for activities that occur on his or her Wi-Free location.

How can I deactivate Wi-Free?

If you have a UPC WLAN modem and do not wish to participate in Wi-Free, you can deactivate the function in My UPC. At the navigation point "My products" you select "Internet". There you can log out of Wi-Free.


However, you will no longer be able to benefit from the free Wi-Free additional service.

 

Important: Registering for Wi-Free will result in any existing deactivation being reversed. In this case, your modem will automatically restart to update the settings. This may take a few minutes. During the reboot, your Internet connection will cut out temporarily.

 

If you have a UPC modem without WLAN functionality, Wi-Free can neither be activate on your modem nor can it be activated in the future. Accordingly, there is also no possibility of deactivating Wi-Free via My UPC.
