What is Boingo Passpoint and how does it work?


Boingo Passpoint™ allows your connection experience to be secure and seamless at 25 airports and nearly 150,000 TWC-Passpoint hotspots nationwide!

Passpoint is a technology that adds an additional layer of security to your Wi-Fi connection. Over-the-air transmissions will be encrypted using the latest-generation security technology. That’s Wi-Fi Protected Access version 2 (WPA2™) Security, if you wanna know.

It also allows you to automatically connect to our network so you don’t have to type in your password. Less to do and more to love. Awesome! 

Boingo subscribers with a Boingo UnlimitedBoingo Mobile, or Boingo Global account can access Passpoint hotspots simply by adding the Boingo Passpoint profile to their device. Passpoint works with all Hotspot 2.0 capable devices running Android 6.0, Windows 10, iPhone 5 (or higher), iPad 3rd generation (or higher), iPad Air, all iPad Mini’s and Macs running OSX Mavericks (or higher).

Here’s some more details if you want to get real technical:

  • Passpoint™ is a certification program for devices and equipment using WBA Next Generation Hotspot standards and guidelines. Implementation of these guidelines enable roaming and network interoperability between different providers when Passpoint™ certified equipment is in use. 

  • Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Passpoint™ devices and hotspot networking equipment implement standardized mechanisms to allow devices from different manufacturers to perform these operations:

    • Network Discovery and Selection: Devices will discover and automatically choose networks based upon user preferences, operator policies and network optimization.

    • Streamlined Network Access: In many cases, devices will be automatically granted access to the network based upon credential mechanisms, such as SIM cards, which are widely used in cellular devices today.
