  • Does it really work???? ☹️

    By BRO. JTP
    If I find a hotspot and I can get it to let me connect it boots me after 5 minutes or less! It always asks for my password! What's with this? I've got The Xfinity security, the app, and 1 time in a month it scrolled a list for me to connect to. Let's see if they really read this! It took 3 yes 3 installs at my home and a month without TV 📺, Phone 📱, and WIFI , And to top it off they lost my old phone number too! At least the company I was with worked. They were slow but worked! My home wifi is the only good thing! Oh 2 year LOCKED IN PRICE YEA RIGHT! ITS INCREASINGLY RAISES EVERY MONTH SINCE MARCH! Until I'm helped and answered my rating stays 1 ⭐️! If I get help and answers I will raise my 1⭐️to what it deserves! Plz watch this post! People do ur homework! They have good home wifi if u stay inside. That's only reason they got 1⭐️! GOD BLESS
  • Xfinity Hotspots needs a Data Quality Agent

    By Original_Macbird
    The app is good in that it allows you to find and sign into the rising number of hotspots. The problem is that the wifi connects automatically and to avoid this on an iOS phone or pad, you have to turn off wifi in the main settings area, mark that particular hotspot as "ask to join" and then turn wifi back on. It connects even if the signal is very weak and/or slow compared to your LTE data. The app or Apple needs an agent to compare the two data streams and choose the one that is strongest and fastest. Without this, the connect is a real pain in the antenna trying maintain your usage.
  • Hotspot...more like Coldspot

    By cam goin ham
    Sometimes I can easily connect to the xfinity network while other times (the times when I REALLY need WiFi and have no other alternative) the app or network just will not work no matter what I do, resetting things, updating everything turning everything off and then back on. My suggestion is to add a way to troubleshoot why I and I’m assuming others encounter...a pop-up message saying “unable to connect to network”. This is very frustrating, especially when there’s no password to get wrong, the network is definitely in range. It would be nice to know what the issue is and whether it’s my device, the app, the network, the router I’m trying to piggyback off. With so many factors it’s hard figure out where to start
  • Don't hate!

    By Sir1SER
    I love this app. I have an internet only iPad and so does my mom. This is great for use when I am out and about. It does not work everywhere but it does work out in the field. I don't use it often and but it has been very helpful when it worked when I needed it to. Think about it. I often say "Well your pad won't work here, only at home." Then I remember this app and I say "Wait! I can get us on the internet here!" And bam! There is service! It is not perfect but it is very useful.

    Gives all hotspots, I only want to connect to XFINITY secured networks, so I don’t allow it to auto-connect, because it connects me to unsecure networks. I cannot connect to any network from this APP, only from my iPhone 6S WiFi. But I almost never can connect to any secure XFINITY hotspot, says I have wrong password, even signed in to this APP and entering password manually. I use a VPN service, but won’t connect with VPN off either. Phone was hacked with commercial software once, Apple, ATT, then Verizon could not or would not diagnose the hack, kept telling me to reload phone and change passwords, which didn’t work. Not sure if it is still hacked, got no support from XFINITY either. Wireless service is still as bad as it was 20 years ago...
  • Xfinity wifi is great without the app

    By Tink8212
    I discovered xfinity wifi was available in my city awhile back and immediately started using it to get wifi virtually everywhere I went. I decided to download the app cause why not? It lets you know where hotspots are, provides a secure connection and automatically connects you, right? Wrong, once I downloaded the app my phone stopped connecting to xfinity wifi and I couldn't understand why? I was signed in on my xfinity account and everything seemed to be connected properly. I decided to try deleting the app since I hadn't had this problem until I downloaded it. Deleting the app immediately solved the problem! Love xfinity wifi but not the app!
  • Nice idea BUT

    By wb2oyc
    Great idea but it just doesn't work properly even after installing what they call the profile to help protect you from wifi snoopers. Oh it'll connect to an xfinity wifi but you're likely to have NO INTERNET ACCESS when it does SO WHAT THE HELL IS THE POINT? Just to ad insult that means you're gonna be using cell data AND it'll remain that way until you MANUALLY reconnect to your home wifi you'll be burning your cell data usage forever unless/until you do. Will Comcast pay your cell phone bill for doing this to you? Just kidding but I did ask! This app would be nice to have if it actually worked as advertised but typical for Comcast very little they claim actually does.
  • Xfinity wifi is trash

    By razoray1000
    I've never had a problem with my previous internet cable provider, but as soon as I switch over to xfinity( due to buying an house in an area that only option was Verizon or Comcast) I've been over my mobile plan 2 gigabytes in one month( I have a 15 gigabyte plan). The hotspot app shows that your in the area of the hotspot and my phone shows that it's connected to the xfinity hotspot. But on the top of my phone screen next to my mobile provider where the cell bars are there is nothing showing that my phone is connected and I'm unable to surf the web or use any app. Optimum was way better.
  • Very poor xfinity wifi service - double zero rating

    By Comcast customer in FL
    I am a Comcast Xfinity customer and my home wifi has been down since early morning today and your team stated several times on the news and through government officials that Comcast xfinity will definitely provide Free Wifi access all over Florida during he hurricane. My location has 3-4 hotspots nearby according to your app , however my brand new Apple iPhone is NOT detecting and xfinity wifi! So basically your statements to the Florida citizens is useless and unavailable. It is frustrating to me as I am also a Comcast customer. Very disappointed with Comcast Xfinity!
  • Disappointed

    By Ctowndrama
    I never needed or wanted this app, however, after seeing some of the new features I figured it could be helpful. After installing and not being able to prioritize my home wifi etc. like the commercial said, I noticed it said those features were for android/PC/MAC only... WHY could those not be for iPhone also... otherwise this app does nothing except show me the wifi locations... which really isn't too useful in the long run. Add the features that you provide every other format and I'll use it again.. maybe
