Using WiFi in Hong Kong

How to use free GovWiFi in Hong Kong? Currently, most government premises in Hong Kong are WiFi-enabled as part of a major initiative under the 2008 Digital 21 Strategy to build Hong Kong into a wireless city.
  1. Get a Wi-Fi enabled mobile device that is compatible with IEEE 802.11 b/g standards
  2. Find out the GovWiFi locations near to you through our GovWiFi Locator or visit any government premises with the GovWiFi signage
  3. Ready your Wi-Fi connection
  4. Set the Network ID (SSID) to "freegovwifi-e" and click "Connect"
  5. Input user name: "govwifi" and password: "govwifi" for encrypted connection
  6. Open your web browser and accept "Conditions of Use and Disclaimers"
  7. Start free surfing at GovWiFi locations
There is security risk in using unencrypted connection "freegovwifi". Please use the encrypted connection "freegovwifi-e" if your Wi-Fi device supports IEEE 802.1x and WPA-Enterprise (or WPA2-Enterprise).

If your device cannot support IEEE 802.1x and WPA-Enterprise / WPA2-Enterprise and you just want to transmit non-sensitive information or use for general browsing, you may set the Network ID (SSID) to "freegovwifi".
