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 does not work with.
Not sure if AutoWiFi is the right App for you? Try AutoWiFi Lite free of charge first (available in the App Store).
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)
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
* iPhone OS 3.0 problems, use OS 2.x or 3.1 instead
* 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
Perfect for Aruba Authentication!
The college where I work uses a single-screen wireless sign-on bases on an Aruba Networks gatekeeper appliance (non-secure network with access limited to students and staff). It is configured so iOS auto-fill does not work and is designed to disconnect after about 10 minutes of inactivity. I was using 1Password (a great and robust app), but AutoWiFi lets me connect with a single tap after it learns the login. 1Password is still my secure wallet but this has taken over all my login chores at work.
Understand its limitations and try out the lite version (only good for a few logins but works as a good test). On our network, it takes about 10 seconds to connect and authenticate--a little slow but still a time-saver. This program may never have a huge market, but it is certainly a grateful one.
Works for my case
If you debug it I will recommend it. It works but you have to test it more. This is the only product that does this. The place I work has a wifi set of routers that kicked me out each time i moved into the range of another router, or when 5 min. went by. After some frustration, it finally worked. I had to ignore ssl cerificates, put the login page address manually, and tell it to "save and ignore" a warning. The app logs me into the network, but it doesn't seem to know it did. It has to run in the background. When there are no available networks it still wants to keep me connected to an unexisting network, so if I want 3G I have to turn the app off (close it).
I attend Santa Clara University and unfortunately they have heavy authentication requirements for all student devices. This doesn't solve it but it does help mitigate the pain. I no longer have to type in my super long username/password every time I want to get onto wifi and back up my iPhone.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
