Sharing members are Fon members who share their broadband connection and in turn get free access at millions of other Fon Spots worldwide. There are 2 ways to become a sharing member:
- As a Fon ISP partner customer (the list of our partners is available here),
- As a Fonera owner.
To get free access to the Fon network, you will have to detect a Fon Spot and log in with your credentials. As a Fon ISP partner customer, your credentials will be the same as your ISP user account's; and as a Fonera owner, it will be the email address and password used for the registration of your Fonera.
If you have any doubt on what credentials to use, please click here.
Fon Spots are created by Foneras and Fon ISP partner routers.
They always contain the word "Fon" for example:
- in Australia: Fon WiFi
- in Belgium: PROXIMUS_FON
- in Brazil: Oi WiFi Fon
- in France: SFR WiFi FON
- in Germany: Telekom_FON
- in Greece: OTE WiFi Fon
- in Hungary: Telekom Fon
- in Japan: FON_FREE_INTERNET
- in the Netherlands: KPN Fon
- in Poland: FON_NETIA_FREE_INTERNET
- in Portugal: NOS_WIFI_Fon or FON_ZON_FREE_INTERNET
- in Romania: Telekom Fon
- in South Africa: @MWEB Fon
- in Switzerland: net+ Fon
- in the Channel Islands: JT Fon
- in the UK: BTWiFi-with-Fon
- in all countries: Fon WiFi, FON_FREE_INTERNET, Fon_xxx.
Fon Spots worldwide can be located in advance using our Maps.
To be able to connect to a Fon Spot you need:
- A WiFi capable device with a web browser i.e. laptop, smartphone or any other WiFi device which has a browser.
- A Fon account of some sort.
At the same Fon Spot you can connect using more than one device at the same time, depending on the network (partnered Fon Spots in Belgium, The Netherlands, Greece and Germany are limited to one connection per Fon account). However, at different Fon Spots it is not possible to connect using the same account at the same time. To get more information about these limitations, please get in touch with your ISP.
If you are not using the Fon app, you will be required to login each time you connect to the internet through a Fon Spot. However, we recommend that you mark the "Remember me on this computer" checkbox. If you wish to disconnect from a Fon Spot, simply disconnect from the WiFi Signal or switch off your device. There is no need to log out.

Depending on your sharing member profile, you will be able to connect to the Fon network thanks to the below alternatives. But first be sure to uninstall the old app in order to avoid any conflict.
- if you are a residential Fonera owner, you will be able to stay connected to Fon WiFi for free using the new Fon WiFi app (for now available for download in all countries except UK, and Portugal; will be released in these countries very soon)
- if you are a Fon ISP partner subscriber, you will still be able to connect to Fon WiFi for free manually, or use a co-branded connection manager app (if applicable)
IMPORTANT: Co-branded connection manager apps are available for:
- NOS subscribers (Portugal): NOS wi-fi (Android / iOS)
- Proximus subscribers (Belgium): Proximus Wi-Fi Hotspots by Fon (Android), Wi-Fi Hotspots (iOS)
- COSMOTE subscribers (Greece): OTE Fon (Android / iOS)
- Netia subscribers (Poland): Netia Fon WiFi Access (Android), NetiaFon (iOS)
Note: If you are using your ISP dedicated connection manager app (not the co-branded) and you travel, you will have to connect manually to Fon Spots. For this, please click here and choose the corresponding country.
