Accessing the internet is about to become a whole lot easier thanks to Facebook’s newest feature.
The social media giant has announced that they’re beginning to roll out ‘Find Wi-Fi’ everywhere in the world, giving users the ability to conveniently find local hot spots.
“Find Wi-Fi helps you locate available Wi-Fi hot spots nearby that businesses have shared with Facebook from their Page,” Facebook said in a statement.

“So wherever you are, you can easily map the closest connections when your data connection is weak.”
The feature was trialed in a few countries last year and proved to be successful.
“We launched Find Wi-Fi in a handful of countries last year and found it’s not only helpful for people who are traveling or on-the-go, but especially useful in areas where cellular data is scarce,” Facebook said.
To find Wi-Fi hotspots, all you have to do is open your Facebook app, click on the “More” tab and then “Find Wi-Fi.” Once in the “Find Wi-Fi” tab you may need to turn it on. You can then browse the closest available hotspots on a map, and learn more about the businesses hosting them.
