Browse free sites

You can browse some selected sites for free. Here, you do not need to connect to any WiFi. For example, you can surf Facebook for free on some mobile networks in Nigeria.

Use your friend’s phone as a hotspot

If you happen to be travelling with someone, simply use their phone as your hotspot. Ensure that you let them know before connecting to their hotspot.

Use a WiFi hotspot database

Using a WiFi database will show you all of the places in a particular location where you can find free WiFi. WeFi is great for this purpose. This is a platform where you simply type in your location and it populates the map with places offering free WiFi. There are also WiFi apps for iPhone and Android you can download.
