How to sign in to Keeping Digital's free Wi-Fi 

Phones displaying the free Wi-Fi screen
At locations where the Wi-Fi is managed by the Keeping Digital Foundation, it's super easy to sign in to our free Wi-Fi! 
In your Wi-Fi settings on your device, look for the network called Keeping Digital Free 
A log-in page will now pop-up on your device - it can take a few seconds to load 
You can sign in via Facebook (on certain devices), or you can fill out the form to create your account/log-in. We only use these details to ensure our network remains safe, and to contact you about the Digital Cafe. We will never sell your details. Once done filling out the form, hit the arrow. 
That's it! You will now be connected for 2 hours of free Wi-Fi. We limit it to 2 hours due to that being the length of our Digital Cafe sessions, however if it times you out and you still need support, speak to a volunteer who should be able to override it with a password. 
 
If you have any questions about our Wi-Fi network, email our team at support@keepingdigital.org.uk or give us a call on 01904 900127 - we're here to help. 
Did you know that you can now sign in via Facebook (on certain devices)? This makes it even easier to get logged in to your Keeping Digital Wi-Fi account! Fingers crossed, we'll roll out the option to log in with other accounts, like Google, in the future. Logging in via these platforms doesn't mean we get any additional data, we just partner with these apps to generate your account details.
