MyPublicWiFi is a versatile application, able to share your Internet connection by creating a virtual Wi-Fi hotspot, to which other devices can connect to based on a secure authentication process.
It’s appropriate for home use, as well as in larger environments such as hotels, cafes, meeting rooms and virtually anywhere you require a shared Internet connection.
MyPublicWiFi isn’t the first, nor the last application of this type, but through ease of use and accessibility, it manages to appeal to users with a lower degree of understanding of WiFi networks and computers.
Wrapped up inside a streamlined design, MyPublicWiFi goes straight to the point with its simple interface, allowing you to setup the network in just a few clicks.
You can use the default network name (SSID) and key that the application provides at startup, but it’s wiser to choose a stronger password for authentication, as well as a more personal name so that users can recognize your network without much trouble.
Once you’ve done these, you can start the hotspot – it will become available almost immediately. Everyone that connects to it is listed inside a separate tab in the main window, allowing you to view their IP and MAC addresses.
Moreover, you can block file sharing software, as well as P2P clients such as eDonkey, BitTorrent and other such applications inside the WiFi hotspot.
On an ending note, MyPublicWiFi allows for the easy creation of hotspots that you can use to share your Internet connection without boundaries, but imposing limits on resource usage is also possible.
