Community Rules for Adding Wi-Fi Hotspots
Community Rules for Adding Wi-Fi Hotspots
Updated over a week ago

At WiFi Map, our commitment is to create a platform where community members can confidently access and share genuine Wi-Fi connections. Ensuring that our users have a reliable and seamless experience is paramount. In order to uphold the standards of our community and service, there are specific guidelines that need to be followed when adding Wi-Fi hotspots. This article outlines the types of hotspots that are not accepted, as well as the reasons behind these decisions.

Types of Wi-Fi Hotspots We Block:

  • Non-Internet Devices: Devices like printers, air conditioners, and other electronics that don't provide actual internet access.

  • Personal Hotspots: Connections shared from mobile phones. These are often temporary and not always reliable for other users.

  • Non-Stationary Wi-Fi: Hotspots found in moving vehicles like buses, trains, and other public transportation, which can't provide a stable connection.

  • Restricted Official Networks: Private hotspots from government facilities, police stations, and other exclusive establishments. Access to these networks is typically restricted to a particular group, making them inappropriate for public sharing.

  • Inappropriate Naming: Wi-Fi names containing offensive or vulgar language are blocked to maintain a family-friendly environment.

  • Wireless Infrastructures: WiFi hotspots that belong to vast wireless infrastructures covering substantial areas—from neighborhoods to entire cities. As many of these networks require payment or have restricted access, they don't align with our goal of freely accessible internet.

  • Other Poor-Quality Hotspots: These can be networks without internet access, with incorrect passwords or inaccurate information, and more.

NOTE: By adding such access points to the map, you won't be awarded leaderboard points or airdrop tokens. Should you repeatedly submit such hotspots, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your account in order to uphold the quality of our platform.

Important to know: Our advanced AI mechanism analyzes each Wi-Fi hotspot individually, applying a range of additional criteria to ensure compliance with our standards. If you believe that a Wi-Fi hotspot, which adheres to our guidelines, has been mistakenly blocked, please reach out to our support team at for further assistance. We value your contribution and will ensure the matter is investigated and resolved appropriately.
