There are lots of wifi hotspots that are open, but require a web-based login to use. Hotels, coffeeshops, workplaces. For password-protected wifi, it's easy to set up Android phones to remember the login and password. But I'd like to be able to use my workplace's open wifi with web-based password on a regular basis, without having to manually type stuff in. It should just automatically connect to the Wifi router, go to http://1.1.1.1 or whatever, type in my password, and then everything else should just work. Is this possible?

(HTC Evo running Android 2.2, fwiw...)

The best you can do is set it up to auto-connect to the network and then manually open a browser when you're in range. Save the username and password in the browser. That gets it down to 2 clicks (er... touches). Make sure Remember Passwords is on the the browser's settings.

There are some apps that claim to do what you want but I've never used them. Here is a list.

  • and for those who are lazy to do those two clicks (Or that one click on login button when it auto-pops)? :// – Saravanabalagi Ramachandran Sep 16 '17 at 18:29

WIFI Web Login works great for those that require a username/password or an email, or even just a checkbox to agree the EULA.

  • This is a $2.99 app in the store now. – slm Sep 18 '16 at 1:27
  • I was also so irritated by this wifi hotspot login in our dormitory. Finally I found this app very useful which works perfectly. For the crack version download from this link. I noticed couple of things in it's configuration. a) don't put hotspot login url b) To run this app on background, disable it from battery optimization. – Dhiren Hamal May 21 at 5:10

Setup the router to allow autologons, this is secure, and no web required. Contact the IT person of the shop.

Mac address of the devices will always show in the router logs, device names may not always.

    That's not a solution a user can apply. Many places use those "captive portals", and usually they've got a reason behind. They won't change that just because some user asks them to. – Izzy Sep 13 '16 at 15:17

use address 10.1.10.10 - it doesn't need a password

    Can you please explain? I don't think this answers the question. How would you know what network OP is using without the networks address having been revealed? IP addresses are specific to networks. So unless the network in question uses an address range including the one you've mentioned, that won't do anything. – Izzy Jun 24 '16 at 6:44
