Hot spot authentication

Updated: August 27, 2013

Applies To: Windows 8, Windows 8.1

You should offload data traffic to Wi-Fi hot spots whenever possible. Windows Connection Manager can automatically connect to Wi-Fi networks when they are available. To connect to Wi-Fi networks, you must provide hot-spot credentials to Windows. You can provide hot-spot credentials through account provisioning metadata, or you can use implement your own authentication in the app.

For info about how you can enable hot-spot authentication by using your mobile broadband app, see Using metadata to configure mobile broadband experiences.
