Wireless@SG offers auto log-in feature

Free wireless internet access at hotspots around Singapore will now be easier with a new Wireless@SG automatic log-in feature.

A new feature called Seamless and Secure Access (SSA) enables an “always on” experience to users as their devices will automatically connect and log into the Wireless@SG network when entering a hotspot. The automatic service requires a new Wireless@SG Connect software that has to be downloaded and installed on Wi-Fi enabled mobile devices or notebooks.

This may sound convenient, however, I do have reservation over the security aspect. With this new “always on” feature, your Wireless@SG account may come under threat and abuse if you ever lost your mobile device. Unless some mitigation measure is incorporated, the success of such implementation may be questioned.
