New app lists Wi-Fi passwords for the world’s airports

Thanks to a new feature launched by Google, you may never have to ask the question, ‘What’s your Wi-Fi password?’ again, at least not at many of the world’s airports.

The feature displays a world map with many major airports depicted by airplane icons. Click on an icon and a list will be displayed providing the location of the Wi-Fi, such as the Delta Sky Club lounge, the network name, and the password if the network is password-protected.

Many of the world’s airports, both large and small, are listed. For example, the app includes information that San Carlos de Bariloche Airport (BRC) in Río Negro, Argentina offers free Wi-Fi without a password, and that the network name is AA2000-Personal.

It also has helpful tips, such as the one offered for Amsterdam’s Schipol Airport (AMS): “Sit near the KLM lounge and tweak this password with the current date: KLM110613 (i.e. KLMDDMMYY).”

The map is updated frequently and both online and offline versions are available. The URL for the online version is https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1Z1dI8hoBZSJNWFx2xr_MMxSxSxY&usp=sharing

Safe and happy travels!
