User reviews:

Interesting concept. Guess you could get the word out to the 5m fire chat user base when you are ready. You will need a big user base for people to try it. Really you need a landing page in the hot spot redirect to tell people to get the app. Look carefully at Microsoft’s blunder on this idea in Windows 8 ( or was it early 10?) They didn’t market it properly. Can a third party, network to local lan resources? If they have access to the lan subnet, security will be an issue.

  • We do take security of both participant of a connection very seriously. Since only selected and whitelist traffic gets offloaded using the Open Garden network, everything that is targeting local lan resources don’t reach the device sharing its Wi-Fi Internet access. A connected user don’t have access to the sharer’s local network.
