O2 Wifi

Unlike other wifi hotspots, O2 Wifi is free to use and available to users on all networks. You do, however, have to be over 18 to register and accept our terms and conditions.


You can use O2 Wifi to browse the web, make phone and video calls over the internet and watch online videos. All of these services work better over wifi than a standard 3G or 4G network or web dongle.


Signing up to O2 Wifi
We've made it as straightforward as we can to sign up to O2 Wifi. All you have to do is find any O2 Wifi hotspot and follow these instructions:


For mobile devices


  1. Ensure that your device's wifi is switched on. This can usually be found in the 'connection settings', or in the system settings on your device
  2. Look at the list of available networks in your wifi settings. You should see O2 Wifi on the list - click on that
  3. Open your device's web browser, which should now display the O2 Wifi homepage
  4. Follow the instructions onscreen until you reach the Welcome screen. Type in your mobile number and you're good to go


For computers


  1. Check that your computer's wifi is on - most computers have a manual switch or button
  2. Open your computer's list of available networks, and select O2 Wifi from the list
  3. Open your computer's web browser
  4. When you're on the O2 Wifi page, follow the onscreen instructions and navigate to the Welcome screen. You’ll need your mobile number to complete the registration


Once you've completed these steps, you won't need to do it again. You'll be automatically signed in as soon as you select O2 Wifi from your list of available networks.


The O2 Wifi app
To make connecting to O2 wifi easier, we've developed a free mobile app. Available for iOS and Android, the app helps you to find O2 Wifi hotspots. With the app, you can:


  • Register for O2 Wifi, wherever you are in the UK (not just in a Hotspot)
  • Find and get directions to a nearby Hotspot
  • Manage your settings (and any other wifi devices you have) on O2 Wifi
  • Get answers to any questions you might have


Adding and removing devices

You can add multiple devices to your O2 Wifi account by clicking here. Set up an account, then click 'Manage my devices' and follow the onscreen instructions.
Alternatively, you can sign up on your new device the same way you did with your first device:


  1. When you reach the sign-up page, type in the mobile number that you signed up with
  2. We will then text a code to your mobile
  3. Type the code into your browser, and your new device is ready to go. You can add up to five devices to one account


You can also remove devices from your account. To do this, visit this page and navigate to 'Manage my devices'. Then, simply select the device you want to remove.
