How To Articles

Have you ever been in a situation where you connect to a public Wi-Fi network on your iPhone, but the login page doesn’t automatically appear? It can be frustrating, especially when you’re eager to connect and browse the internet. Fortunately, there’s a way to manually open the Wi-Fi login page on your iPhone, and I’m here to guide you through the process.

Before we dive into the steps, let me share a personal experience. Last week, I was at a coffee shop and wanted to connect to their Wi-Fi. However, the login page didn’t pop up automatically, and I was left wondering what to do. After some trial and error, I discovered this workaround, which I’m excited to share with you today.

Step 1: Connect to the Wi-Fi Network

The first step is to connect your iPhone to the Wi-Fi network as you normally would. Open the Settings app and navigate to Wi-Fi. Choose the network you want to connect to and enter the password if required. Once connected, you’ll notice that the internet won’t work, as the login page hasn’t appeared yet.

Step 2: Open Safari and Visit a Non-HTTPS Website

Now, open the Safari browser on your iPhone and try visiting a non-HTTPS website, such as (replace “” with any non-HTTPS website of your choice). It’s essential that the website you visit does not have an HTTPS connection, as these websites won’t redirect to the login page.

By visiting a non-HTTPS website, you trick your iPhone into believing that the connection is insecure, prompting it to redirect to the login page.

Step 3: Manually Open the Login Page

If all goes well, you should be redirected to the Wi-Fi login page after visiting the non-HTTPS website. If the redirection doesn’t happen automatically, you may need to manually trigger it. To do this, open a new tab in Safari and enter the router’s IP address in the address bar. The default IP address for most routers is, but it may vary depending on your network setup. You can find your router’s IP address in the Wi-Fi settings on your iPhone or by checking the router manual.

The IP address should take you to the router’s login page. Here, you’ll need to enter the correct login credentials provided by the network administrator or hotspot provider. Once logged in, you’ll have successfully opened the Wi-Fi login page on your iPhone manually.

It’s important to note that these steps may not work in all cases, as some networks implement different login methods or captive portals. Additionally, it’s crucial to respect the terms and conditions of the Wi-Fi network you’re connecting to and ensure that accessing the login page manually doesn’t violate any rules or regulations.


Manually opening the Wi-Fi login page on your iPhone can be a useful workaround when the login page doesn’t appear automatically. By following these steps, you can successfully connect to public Wi-Fi networks that require a login, even if the login page doesn’t show up.

Remember to use this method responsibly, respecting the network’s terms and conditions, and ensuring you have the necessary login credentials. Happy browsing!
