Do the hotels in Lisbon have free WiFi?

I will travel to Lisbon in May, and it is very important for me to have a good Internet connection in my hotel. Do the hotels in Lisbon have WiFi? Do they have free WiFi? Is it safe to use?

Lisbon is a beautiful city in May, so we hope you will have time to leave your hotel, in order to discover the beauties of the city. But, if a good WiFi connection is crucial to your stay, make sure to check it with your hotel before your arrival. If you decide to book your hotel using, make sure to read the descriptions properly, and maybe include free WiFi as an option as you search for a hotel in Lisbon.

But, some hotels write that they include free WiFi, but as you arrive, you will soon discover that the free WiFi is only available at certain spots in the hotel. Therefore, contact the hotel you are interested in directly, at least if it is of utmost importance that it works perfectly from your arrival. You can contact your hotel sending them an email, but you are probably even better off calling them. You will then receive an answer straight away, as most hotels have people available in the reception answering calls all day long.

Watch out as you use the free WiFi

If you need a WiFi in the hotel to watch Facebook, that is nice. But, if you need a WiFi connection to get your job done, to manage your finances, or maybe follow the cryptocurrency market in order to place buy- and sell orders at the right time, then a WiFi connection isn’t enough. You need to secure your Internet connection because it is no secret that there are a lot of thieves out there stealing confidential information from other users using the same open WiFi network. What can you do to secure the WiFi connection, to make sure that nobody steals your passwords or your digital money?

The best solution is to use a VPN, a Virtual Private Connection. Make sure that you have a VPN application installed on your computer and your phone, connect to a server to encrypt your connection, and after that, you can once again visit all the sites you are interested in, and enter your username and passwords to visit your Internet bank, a popular exchange or read your email without worrying at all. You can read more about different VPN providers in the IP Address Guide.

If you do not want to use your money on a VPN subscription, then you could consider using the TOR Network instead. That is, however, slower, and it doesn’t always work as you want to, so using a VPN is much easier.

Do not forget about this as you eat your lunch

You will most likely eat your lunch somewhere else, and as you sit in a restaurant and use their free WiFi, do not forget about your security. You might not check your email right then, but pro-hackers can easily steal your confidential information from your phone or laptop as you use a free WiFi signal, so watch out. There have been so many stories about people losing their confidential pictures after hacker attempts. If you don’t want to suffer from similar trouble, secure your connection and stay safe.
