This app will give you peace of mind that you’re connecting to a secure UPC service.
What is it?
With the Secure Connect app, your favourite Android device is protected against any unauthorized Wi-Fi networks posing as a UPC WifiSpots or Wi-Free access point.
How does it work?
The app installs a Wi-Fi profile on your Android device. This profile recognises the network and ensures your device only connects to a genuine UPC WifiSpots or Wi-Free network.
Who can use this app?
This app is for all UPC internet customers who use an Android device to connect to the UPC WifiSpots or Wi-Free network.
The app will install three Wi-Fi profiles: UPC WifiSpots, Horizon Wi-Free and UPC Wi-Free, allowing you to safely use the service at home and in other UPC countries.
How do I install Secure Connect?
Simply download and install Secure Connect from the Google Play store on your favourite Android device.
Then, run the app to install a Wi-Fi profile. You must have a screen lock set on your device to log into the Secure Connect App. If you do not already have a screen lock set, you will be prompted to do so when you first log into the app.
Finally, enter your WifiSpots or Wi-Free username and password to complete the install of the Wi-Fi profiles.
The steps to install the app may differ from one device brand to another. Detailed install manuals can be found on the UPC websites.
Make sure to run this app on all your android devices; smartphones and tablets alike.
Secure Connect is compatible from Android version 2.x and above.
WifiSpots and Wi-Free can still be used without this app.
Once the app has been run and the profile is successfully installed, the app can be deleted. The profile will remain installed.
