My flight got delayed, so while hanging out at the Mumbai airport, I pulled out my laptop to figdet around and saw a “Free Wifi From Airtel” as one of the networks.
Once I connected to it, I was asked to enter my mobile number to get the login/password. I entered my mobile number, got the login details and I signed-in. Voila! Connected.
I know there is no such thing as free lunch, but hey what the heck. It
seems like an innovative way to do lead generation is a way for security agencies to track users. Cheap and effective. I am sure there are many others like me who would fall for this ;-)
