The network identifies devices by a MAC address, which is a special unique address of a smartphone, tablet or laptop. MAC address is listed in the settings, in the general information about the device, and it looks like this - xx: xx: xx: xx: xx: xx. Authentication procedure is mandatory for each new device. Up to five MAC addresses (devices) can be associated with one phone number. Re-entering the network using the same device will automatically take you to the authorization page with the “Connect” button.
Pursuant to the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 801 dd. August 12, 2014, users connecting to public Wi-Fi networks must undergo mandatory authentication. Acting in accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation, we set up the authentication process by way of verifying the cell phone number.
Authentication by cell phone number: 1. Connect to Wi-Fi Network, open browser and go to http:gowifi.ru , after which you will be directed to the authentication page. 2. Select the “By phone number” registration method. 3. Enter your cell phone number and click on the “Next” button. 4. Wait for the incoming text message with a verification code. 5. Enter the received code in the confirmation form. 6. Registration is complete.
The same way you would do it on a device with a sim-card. During registration, you must provide a valid cell phone number, from which you need to send SMS.
At this time, authentication is only available with a cell phone number.
Up to five devices can be associated with one cell phone number. If five devices are already associated with your number, the one that has not appeared on the network the longest will be deleted.
If every time (or oftentimes) you connect to our network, you receive a request for authentication, this most likely means that your device changes its MAC address every time you log on to the network. We do not guarantee operational stability of such devices. You need to find a way to disable random MAC address. Apart from that, automatic de-authentication is carried out considering that the number of mobile devices in the network is constantly growing, they change owners, are resold, lost, etc.
Access to the public Wi-Fi network, according to the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 801 of 12.08.2014, is not provided without identification.
Usually, the identification process is completed within a few minutes, but sometimes, for technical reasons, it can take up to 24 hours.
