What is a captive portal network?
A captive portal is a web page that the user of a public-access network is required to view and interact with before access to the WiFi network is granted. Captive portals are typically used by business centers, airports, hotel lobbies, coffee shops, and other venues that offer free Wi-Fi hotspots for Internet users.

2. Using a computer or a mobile device connect to the WiFi network of the travel access point.
3. Confirm connection to the captive portal window.
4. Connect your mobile phone to the travel access point.
5. Pair your nanit on the travel access points network.
