The FRITZ! Hotspot for your guests

Internet use on the go with smartphones and tablets has long since become the norm. Many of your friends are always online. If they have a rate with limited data, costs are constantly accruing. With the wireless guest access of your FRITZ!Box you can grant your visitors secure access to your wireless network. If you run a café or medical practice, the secure FRITZ! Hotspot is an extra perk: Everyone likes to surf over coffee or shorten their wait by checking their smartphone.

Your own hotspot in an instant

The wireless guest access makes it easy to turn your FRITZ!Box into a hotspot. With this it is easy to create a wireless network especially for your visitors – completely separated from your own home network. By default, Internet applications are restricted to surfing and mailing. Whether registered devices can communicate with each other can be specified with a single click.

Registration – quick and simple

To grant your visitors convenient access to the Internet, print out the QR code to unlock the connection with the FRITZ!Box. Just scan the code with a smartphone and the connection will be established automatically. Or press a button to register via WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup). Of course, your guests can also simply search for your wireless network and enter the network key. The wireless network is easy to recognize by its name "FRITZ!Box guest access". And configured parental controls can also be applied to the hotspot.

Keeping an eye on registered devices

Kick back and schedule when your private hotspot switches on and off. Use the app or FRITZ!Fon to close the wireless network for guests, or set it to close automatically when the last guest has left. If you like, you can have the FRITZ!Box push service send you a daily e-mail message informing you about who registered with your network. And if you use a FRITZ!WLAN Repeater, the wireless hotspot is available everywhere your repeater provides for coverage.
