    My country (a small island.. so small it's a red dot on a world map) has island-wide free wifi service. Well, not technically the whole country... but in most areas like shopping malls, library, cafes, .etc.

    The problem is... we are required to register an account before being able to use it. And yes, important information like our identification details must be entered. Because of this requirement, it made me kinda feel unsafe to do spamming or something.

    So just curious about it... the country you're at or the place (macdonalds, starbucks, .etc) you're at to use wi-fi.... do you require "account registration" before being able to use their wi-fi services?

    awesome~ do you require an account before being able to use it? Or do you simply connect and start surfing?

    I know for a fact, at least in Texas, public libraries and other government funded areas, do require registration requiring State ID's and such. But there are other places, like coffee shops, Internet Cafes on the poorer neighborhoods that don't. If you are really worried that they may be peeking into your activities(DNS requests, etc) then get a VPN and test if they allow you to connect with PPTP (cheaper and supposedly not available in Iran and China), if not OpenVPN (supposedly more widely available). Once you are in a VPN, use a different proxy on the actual browser. The word is that PPTP VPN's sometimes "leak" DNS requests, but doing both a VPS and a proxy on the browser, lowers the chances of any request ultimately leaking to your country ISP.

    At least that's what I would do. If you are really paranoid, pay a homeless bum to register and get access credentials for you, that way if it ever leaks, it won't lead straight to you... and unless you are doing some REALLY shady shit, I don't think anyone will go through the trouble to follow up and waterboard the bum to find out who the fuck you are... just my 2 cents...

    If any WiFi is having WEP security then use an OS called BackTrack 4....It hacks within 10 mins or so but you shd know it how :)
