TIP: Customizing Your Hotspot

June 21st, 2012 by sackerman under News & Announcements

Connectify PRO has a lot to offer: unlimited Fling file transfers, the ability to share your 3G/4G USB connection, and priority support.  But one of our favorite features is the ability to customize your SSID!

“SSID” stands for Service Set Identification. In simple terms, your SSID is the name of your hotspot. In Connectify Lite, you may notice that you can customize your hotspot name, but with limitations.

Currently, Connectify LITE users see “Connectify-” before they are able to see their hotspot name.

In Connectify PRO, users are able to create their own SSID or hotspot name, without limits.

We asked our Facebook friends what they call their hotspot. Here are our top 5 favorites:

Elijah A. – “twoguysonerouter”

Dan S. – “Pretty Fly for a Wifi”

Hamid K. – “NoFreeWiFi4u”

Kaleb S. – “FBI Surveillance Van #3″

David H. – “Bill Wi the Science Fi”

We’re curious. Tell us in the comments what you name YOUR hotspot!
