With the prevalence of public and private Wi-Fi networks - at home, restaurants and other public places - companies can save significant money by taking advantage of Wi-Fi access from smartphones and tablets. Wi-Fi apps are available that can detect secure Wi-Fi networks nearby and facilitate login for users.
