Choosing splash page options

ComplexityEasy

Available for both the private and guest WiFi networks, you can choose three access options:

  • None: Direct access means the connection works automatically. WiFi users will see no custom message or notification. There is no opportunity to reach out to customers to increase engagement.
  • Click-through: WiFi users will see a custom message that you manage. You can update the message any time you like and set the frequency for how often users will see the message reappear. Use click-through to highlight your hours, current promotions, new items in store, or anything else you would like to help increase communication with your customers.
  • Sign-on with Facebook WiFi: Sign-on with Facebook WiFi requires a user to "Like" your Business Facebook page in order to use your guest WiFi network. Users will also get your Facebook updates in their Facebook news feed, and their friends will see your business under the user's 'Likes' section of their Facebook profile. This can help leverage social media for repeat visits if you use your Business Facebook page to keep people up-to-date with your business' news.
