Facebook Wi-Fi

Facebook Wi-Fi turns your router into a WiFi hotspot, prompting customers searching for WiFi to check in and like your Facebook Page before using the web for free. This opens the door to building closer relationships with your customers by sharing offers and announcements, boosting engagement on your Facebook page, and accessing aggregate insights about your customer base.

Why Facebook Wi-Fi?

You will no longer need to spend time and resources providing a WiFi password to guests. Together with the intuitive setup flow (and no additional maintenance), Facebook Wi-Fi means a better user experience for both you and your customers.

How does it work?

It's easy to set up your router so your customers can access free WiFi by checking in to your location on Facebook. Once your customers check in, they have the option to like your Page, so you can continue to reach them with your future posts. Share offers and promotions on your Page so that when people check in, it's the first thing they'll see.

Will it really help my business?

Facebook has run early pilots with local merchants who all saw a significant uplift in their number of check-ins, after installing Facebook Wi-Fi. Check-ins can help make your business more discoverable, as check-ins can show up in News Feed, and help people find you in Graph Search.
