Today’s internet startup Instabridge is a really groundbreaking and simple way to use and share Wi-Fi. It deals with the annoying problem of getting WiFi passwords at e.g. a friends place. You simply log into your Facebook account and Instabridge automatically sets up your phone to use WiFi when visiting the homes of your Facebook friends.
Instead having to go into settings, choosing a network and finding the password (typically forgotten or hidden under a router) all you need to do is log on with your Facebook account and Instabridge automatically configures your phone to use Wi-Fi when you’re home at any of your friends on Facebook. To add a network you need to connect to it and then input the password to confirm that it’s yours.
The people at Instabridge take security and privacy very seriously. It is designed around the idea that you should have full control over who you share your Wi-Fi network with. They will never share access to your router without your consent. Normally when someone wants to use your Wi-Fi, you have to show them the password. And once you have shown it to them, you can never take it back. With Instabridge you just allow them access by friending them. They can then connect to your Wi-Fi network without ever seeing the password. If you want to stop giving them access, you can just unfriend them.
You can really say the Instabridge is unlocking the world of Wi-Fi. It is building the world’s largest Wi-Fi network built on the social graph. Instabridge was founded in 2012 by Niklas Agevik and holds office in Stockholm, Sweden.
