Security software giant Avast is crowdsourcing data to reveal the best Wi-Fi hotspots

If you have lots of users using mobile hotspots, why not gather information about the quality of the WiFi links they’re on?

“Avast is crowdsourcing data from its millions of users around the world to serve a new mobile app that tells you where the best and most reliable nearby Wi-Fi is.

“With Avast Wi-Fi Finder — available forAndroid and iOS — users can see what Wi-Fi hotspots are near, and which ones are most secure and recommended by other users. You can also compare networks for speed and look at the security ratings, as verified by Avast users.”
