AutoWiFi logs on your iPhone or iPod Touch automatically to Wi-Fi hotspots by saving your username and password and sending it to the hotspot provider when needed. No more remembering and retyping your username and password every time: just launch AutoWiFi and you're connected. It replaces the built in system and works with many hotspots that the built in system fails with.
Note: If you get a “No WiFi Connection” or “You are already connected” message, follow these instructions
With iOS 5.1 and above you need to disable “Auto-Login” in the iOS device settings. To do so open the Settings app, tap Wi-Fi, and the blue arrow icon on the right, and turn off Auto-Login. Now connect to the network.
AutoWiFI will now be able to see your network and learn to use it by watching you log in (if you already logged in, log out and then launch AutoWiFi)
AutoWiFi Lite is free and allows you to test and ensure that AutoWiFi will work with your network. AutoWiFi Lite works exactly like AutoWiFi but forgets all stored networks and settings every 4 times you start the app. If you are happy with AutoWiFi Lite and would like to permanently store your connections purchase AutoWiFi from the App Store (click the "All applications by subzero.eu" link below).
By using an advanced learning system AutoWiFi works with most web authenticated hotspots out of the box so you don't have to send us information on the hotspot for us to add it to a database. Simply launch AutoWiFi and log in once by following the "add network" instructions. AutoWiFi learns what to do to connect and will automatically connect you in future without you having to reenter your data: quick, clean and easy.
* Automatically logs you on to your web authenticated hotspots (public WiFi hotspots such as universities, hotels, restaurants, cafes)
* Advanced learning system can learn to connect to hotspots without sending us information about them first
* Store as many WLAN hotspots as you want to
* No need to wait for us to update a database in case a hotspot changes its connection profile: just let AutoWiFi relearn it
* Zero-Touch reconnecting: once AutoWiFi knows your network you only need to launch the app, no further clicks are needed to log on
* Very easy to use
* Forgets all settings and networks every 4 application launches. Purchase AutoWiFi to remove this restriction.
* Will not work on hotspots where you have to enter your username and password on the first page and accept a license agreement on a second page
* Networks that need an sms to connect (e.g. the AT&T network) will not work
1) Go to the hotspot you wish to use and add it to the iPhone's known hotspots (launch Settings and press WiFi).
2) Instead of launching Safari to enter your user name and password, launch AutoWiFi instead.
3) AutoWiFi will offer you an Add Network button. Click it and follow the instructions to teach AutoWiFi to connect.
4) Next time you need to log in to this hotspot just launch AutoWiFi and it will automatically re-authenticate you. You no longer need to retype your username and password every time.
- Improved support for WISP based hotspots
- Added support for some hotspots that have a two page login system (e.g. AirBears, University of California)

Ratings and Reviews
It serves a purpose
Although itouches connect to routers and saves the password, at college I have to manually log in every time. This actually bypasses that and allows me to remain connected all the time. So I'm pretty content with it. Might not be for everyone but it saves me trouble.
Excited to find a solution to having to log in to various captive wifi's, but alas, my excitement was (very) short lived.
This thing launches, and that's about it. Freezes up, never finds WiFi, basically severely outdated. Looks like it was designed for the first iphone.
Not sure why Apple keeps this stuff alive, makes the app store feel like Google play.
Unusable - freezes constantly
Good idea, but I’ve only even managed to get to the wifi login screen once without the app freezing, and that time it froze on the login screen. I can’t tell if the app even does what it is intended to do, because it freezes every time I run it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
