Connect a device to GovWifi
You need a public sector staff email address to sign up for a GovWifi account.
If you do not have a public sector staff email address, you can connect to GovWifi as a visitor.
1. Sign up for a GovWifi account
Create a GovWifi account by using your public sector staff email address to:
- send a blank email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- leave the subject line blank
We will email your username and password confirmation in reply.
If you do not receive the username and password confirmation e-mail within a few minutes of signing up, please check your spam/junk e-mail folder.
2. Connect your device to GovWifi
When you are in a organisation that offers GovWifi, follow the steps below to connect your device:
- Go to your device wifi settings and select GovWifi.
Enter the username and password you received by email or text.
Your password is case sensitive. It's 3 words without spaces. The first letter of each word is capitalised.
You can use the same username and password on all the devices you connect to GovWifi.
