Who Can Use Free Xfinity Wi-Fi Hotspots?

To use any Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspot, you should be subscribed to a qualifying post-pay Xfinity Internet plan or have a Comcast Business account. You become eligible to use all Xfinity hotspots as soon as you sign up with Xfinity, even before the equipment is set up at your home. Xfinity Mobile customers are also eligible to use all Xfinity hotspots without paying any additional cost for the service.

 

How to Find an Xfinity Wi-Fi Hotspot

Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspots usually show up in the list of available networks on your device as Xfinity Wi-Fi or XFINITY when you are in the range. To look for an Xfinity hotspot near you, just check the online availability map. Alternatively, you can also use the Xfinity app to locate a hotspot close to you through the Connect tab.

To connect to secure XFINITY hotspots, you will need to download the free Xfinity Wi-Fi Hotspots app from the App Store or Google Play. It is now exclusive to Xfinity Internet customers. The app will not only detect and let you know about any Xfinity hotspots near you but give access to the connection using the newest security features. Xfinity Mobile customers, however, do not need this app because their connection is established automatically using a secure profile.

 

How to Connect to an Xfinity Wi-Fi Hotspot with the App

To connect and use an Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspot you must have a wireless device such as a cell phone, laptop, or tablet. iOS devices running on 11.0 or higher, Android devices operating on 4.4 or higher, Mac systems using OS X Lion (10.7) or later, and Windows-based systems running on Windows 10 or later – will work with secure Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspots.

Some devices like Chromebooks, Linux PCs, Blackberry phones, and Amazon Kindle are not currently supported and hence would not be able to work with a secure XFINITY Hotspot.

Connecting to an Xfinity hotspot is fairly easy and gives you instant access to a secure connection. We have included a couple of short guides for each system type below to help you through the process.

 

Android & iOS

  • Download the Xfinity WiFi Hotspot Application
  • Turn on the WiFi access on your device
  • Sign in to the application using your Xfinity user ID and password
  • The application installs the Xfinity WiFi secure profile, thus allowing you to automatically connect to the secure Xfinity WiFi network
  • Add the WiFi hotspot network when prompted. You may also receive a prompt to connect to the XFINITY network if you’re in the range of an Xfinity hotspot.
  • You are now online and safe! Go to the browser of your choice and surf the World Wide Web.

Note: After signing into the app once, your device will automatically connect to any Xfinity hotspots within range.

 

Mac OS X

  • Go to Settings and then to WiFi
  • Select XFINITY
  • Enter your Xfinity user ID and password in order to connect
  • You’ll be asked to re-enter your Xfinity credentials. And you can also name your device if you so wish. Note that you’ll be prompted for your device passcode.

 

Windows 10

  • Go to Settings and then to Network & Internet
  • Select XFINITY
  • Enter your Xfinity user ID and password
  • Choose Connect to join the network


Once you are connected to an Xfinity WiFi hotspot, you can browse the internet without any security concerns. Your network is secure and safe. Plus using an Xfinity Hotspot does not count against your monthly data if you are an Xfinity Internet user. So, you get limitless connectivity no matter where you go.

 

How to Connect to Xfinity Wi-Fi Hotspot without the App

If for any reason you prefer to connect without the Xfinity WiFi Hotspot app, you can do so manually. All you have to do is connect to the Xfinity wifi network instead of the XFINITY network. And this is how you will go about it:

  • Use your device to connect to the Xfinity wifi network
  • Next, open your web browser. It will take you to the sign-in web page for Xfinity WiFi. In case that does not happen automatically, you can go directly
  • Sign in using your Xfinity credentials, and register your device. You can use either a primary or a secondary username and password.

 

Automatic Sign-in to Xfinity Wi-Fi Hotspots

If you have the Xfinity Wi-Fi Hotspot app, you only need to sign in once to the Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspot. Once you do that, you are added to the Xfinity hotspot network, and your device will automatically detect and connect to the network whenever in range. You do not have to sign in each time which is quite a big time saver.

However, any changes to your account are likely to affect the automatic sign-in. For instance, if the password for your Xfinity internet account changes, you will have to update your profile with the new details to keep the automatic sign-in to XFINITY hotspots.

You can connect up to 10 devices to Xfinity WiFi at a time on a single account. But if you want automatic sign-in on more than one device, you’ll have to sign in and register the devices separately.

Automatic sign-in is of course not supported if you are not an Xfinity Internet user. All Xfinity Mobile customers however have a secure profile already available on their Xfinity Mobile devices, so they do not have to download the Xfinity WiFi Hotspot app to use the Wi-Fi hotspot.

 

Featured Xfinity Wi-Fi Hotspots – Open to All

Xfinity has some featured hotpots too; hotspots that are typically open to all and can be used by everyone and anyone. Even people who are not Xfinity customers. These complimentary Wi-Fi hotspots are easily identifiable on the hotspot map by special icons. It helps all people connect to high-speed Xfinity Wi-Fi and enjoy the service offered by the provider.

To connect to a featured Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspot, you should do the following:

  • Connect to the network that shows up as xfinitywifi
  • A sign-in page would appear. If it doesn’t you can visit xfinity.com, redirected to a sign-in page
  • Here, just click on the Accept and Connect option
  • Follow the on-screen instructions, and soon you will be online

Featured hotspots are very useful for people, however, it is guest access which is not available everywhere. So before you go to any place with the hope of connecting to this network, make sure you have scouted the area well, and you are sure featured Xfinity hotspots are available. Be mindful, however – Wi-Fi through featured hotspots implies you are on an open network and not a secure connection.

Troubleshoot Xfinity Hotspot Connectivity

For Open Networks


In case you are using the xfinitywifi network to connect to a hotspot and facing trouble, here are some quick troubleshooting tips to follow:

  • If you cannot see xfinitywifi on your device’s list of available networks, you are probably in a location that does not have an Xfinity hotspot, to begin with. You can check on the Xfinity app or the online map for featured Xfinity hotspots in the area
  • If xfinitywifi is available on your list of networks but your device does not connect, check the signal bars on your device. If two or fewer bars are available, you may have to move closer to the source of the signal to establish a full connection

 

For Secure Networks

If you are an Xfinity Internet user and trying to connect to the secure XFINITY network only to fail, there may be some issues. And here are a couple of simple troubleshooting tips you can test out.

  • If the XFINITY network does not appear on your list of available connections, you are not in range of a viable Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspot
  • If you are using the Xfinity WiFi Hotspot app and cannot connect to the network, make sure you have the secure profile installed. For Apple devices, you can try signing in as a different user from the app settings
  • If you change the password for your Xfinity account, you will have to sign in to the Xfinity WiFi Hotspot app again. And once the new security profile is installed, you can easily go online via the secure XFINITY connection without any issues
