Capture additional data from your free users by forcing them to register an account. That way they can access the hotspot with a username and password they choose instead of an access code. Additional data can be captured, such as name or e-mail address. Up to 5 custom questions can also be captured, like room number or a feedback.
Access can be restricted to one access code per phone number within a predefined time. That way you can avoid heavy usage by one user which can get your network overloaded. Restrict country code of mobile numbers so only local people can access your hotspot.
Individual users can also be blacklisted. You have full control over your hotspot users.
