Totally useless! Negative Star! Free hotspot are false advertising!
I wish there was a possibility to give this a negative star to the supposedly "Free Wifi Hotspots " service for Spectrum/ Brighthouse customers. This app might be working as designed but the underlying hotspot network it is supposed to facilitate access to is a real joke to say the least. This definitely falls in the category of false advertising and should be investigated by the FTC. Why claim daily on commercials that they have a network of 500,000 hotspots when none is accessible? In the city of Tampa I've tried at least 15 in different parts of the city without any success. I even deleted and reinstalled the security profile several time, recreated my brighthouse online profile on advice from customer support, and still cannot access any "BHN Secure" wifi hotspot.
My advice: Don't waste your time at all on this and consider those hotspots "False Advertising" until proven otherwise.
No BHN Secure Network
There is no BHN Secure Network or any Brighthouse Network for that matter. I have never been able to connect to it and I have called and asked about it and have been told that the network is working correctly and they have no reported problems. Of course customer service is totally useless and they don't usually know what they are talking about. I have already cut the cable cord and haven't missed it at all. I do need and want internet service and I'm in the process of doing my research on who I may want to switch to. Also for home setups of wifi you should make sure you are hard wired into router as I have noticed that when I use my laptop with wifi that is when I get potential viruses on my laptop but if I'm hard wired I do not get any suspicious activity on my laptop.
It's good to have it helps out on your data I keep it on all the time and never turn it off I stoped using all my data with it if I am in a Brighthouse hotspot it will put me on it automatically and never have to worry if I am on wi Fi just look at my phone and if it a BH place it's on my phone. It's the best a lot of people don't like it because a lot of people don't know how to use it. Or don't keep their wi Fi on their phone all the time.
