[[!meta title="Logging in to captive portals"]]
Many publicly accessible Internet connections (usually available through a
wireless network connection) require users to first log in to a *captive
portal* in order to access the Internet.
A captive portal is a web page that is displayed to the user before the user
can access the Internet. Captive portals usually require the user to log in to
the network or enter information such as an email address. Captive portals are
commonly encountered at Internet cafés, libraries, airports, hotels, and
universities.

[[!meta title="Warning! The web browser you are currently using is not
anonymous!"]]
<p>You are currently using the Unsafe Browser. As its name suggests,
the Unsafe Browser's network activity is <strong>not
anonymous</strong>. If you want a safe, anonymous web browser, please
shut this browser down immediately and start the following web browser
instead:
<em>Applications</em> → <em>Internet</em> → <em>Tor Browser</em>.</p>
<p>If you want to login to a captive portal to get Internet access (as
is commonly necessary at Internet cafés, libraries, schools and other
public places and businesses), try visiting any web site you know of
by entering its address in the address field above. The web site you
choose should preferably be common to your geographic location in
order to raise less suspicion (good examples of such pages are search
engines, news papers' home pages and similar). Once you've done that
you should be redirected to the login page instead, and once logged in
you should have Internet access so that you can start your anonymous
activity by using <strong>other</strong> applications than the Unsafe
Browser.</p>
<p><strong>Note that the Unsafe Browser is never anonymous, not even
after you have logged in to a captive portal.</strong></p>
[[!meta title="Warning! This browser is not anonymous!"]]
<p>The <em>Unsafe Browser</em> is not using Tor and is not
anonymous.</p>
<p><strong>Only use the <em>Unsafe Browser</em> to log in to captive
portals.</strong><p>
<p>For a safe and anonymous browser, use <em>Tor Browser</em>
instead.</p>
