Consumers will sign into your in-store WiFi network, reaching a splash page, which lists the terms and conditions. The guest must opt-in to use the free Internet – you can require them to share email addresses, social network connections or other consumer information. This is what makes guest WiFi is beneficial for consumers and merchants.
