THERE’S nothing worse than being without data.
Whether you enter a connection dead zone or you’ve simply ran out of data, it’ll leave you out in the cold on WhatsApp, the internet and anything else you need online.
Fortunately there’s a little-known app that could help.
It’s called Wi-Fi Map.
And it’ll show you publicly available Wi-Fi hotspots nearby.
So you can spare your data and use the free Wi-Fi instead.
Whether it’s a nearby cafe or a McDonald’s, it’ll show you what’s available.
The app has more than 25,000 public Wi-Fi spots listed for England alone.
You can even download maps offline before you go out if you want to be extra sure.
Just open the app and tap Wi-Fi Finder.
You can also help others find Wi-Fi networks by listing any that aren’t already on the platform.
Tap the Add Wi-Fi button in the bottom right and follow the instructions.
You earn points for contributions, which can be used for rewards such as ad-free access to the app.
