Customer Reviews of the Boingo Wi Finder App

Broke my WiFi connection.

This app disabled the WiFi connection on my iPhone X during my stay at two different Marriott hotels. Using the app to connect to WiFi only worked for a few minutes before returning to cellular data. Uninstalling the app fixed my WiFi issues completely.

Blocks WiFi with login page (hotels, airports, etc)

DON’T INSTALL THIS CRAP!!! After installing this app, I couldn’t use WiFi in hotels, airports or any other hotspot with a login page. Everything returned to work after I removed it from my phone.

Don’t load this virus onto your phone

Worse than garbage. It straight up doesn’t connect to ANY wi-fi . Does not work as advertised. Ever. Even worse, it intercepts legitimate attempts to connect to wi-fi and makes it impossible to log into the welcome screens in public places. So it both doesn’t work and interferes with normal operations. Just smash a big rock into your forehead until you pass out and bleed all over yourself. It’ll be more productive and more fun.

Corrupts your whole iPhone

BlitzScania's Review of Boingo Wi Finder

Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:48 PM

iOS users be warned: I spent 11 months wondering why my iPhone wouldn’t load captive portal screens, thus preventing me from using dozens (hundreds?) of free WiFi locations around the world. Apple Geniuses had no idea what the problem was, nor did anyone on the Apple message boards. Then one random user with the same issue said deleting the Boingo app would fix the issue, so I did. Everything works properly now. This app is garbage from a garbage company that monetizes WIFi in places like airports where Internet should simply be free. Boingo extorts money from people when they’re often desperate to get online, and that’s just a fact. It’s been screwing me for months and I’m done. I hope the company fails.

Little Use and perhaps causing WiFi issues

In the past years travel, I found one WiFi network that made use of Boingo. On the other hand, I’m concerned that the app might be otherwise interfering with WiFi logins and so uninstalled the app. I’ll reinstall if needed.

Prevents hotel WiFi landing pages from opening

The title says it all, this issue had been dogging me for over a year, I finally figured out that the app wasn’t letting the landing page load. Deleted the app, now it works like a charm. I love being able to connect to hotspots at airports transparently, but I spend more time at hotels, so it’s staying uninstalled until they fix this.

Eating 90% of battery

The app clashes with other WiFi and prevents you from logging in. I find it is extremely problematic at Hotels (Hiltons, Marriott....). It typically results in deleting the app.

Prevents WiFi connections

Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:48 PM

I couldn’t figure out why I was connected to the WiFi at my hotel on my iPhone, but the phone was refusing to actually use the WiFi connection. A quick search revealed that this app actually prevents you from connecting to certain WiFi access points! Deleted the app and now I can connect just fine. This app is worse than useless, it is actually detrimental to your phone even when you’re not using it!

Interferes with other wi-fi & updates can lock up your phone and drain battery

Too many times now I’ve been blocked from hotel wi-fi because this app is interfering in the background. Latest update kept spooling until it nearly drained my battery. Use this app as a last resort and turn it off otherwise! App user beware.
