Wi-Fi Partner is a mobile app that can magically make paid Wi-Fi hotspots free. It’s not like jailbreaking an iPhone and making paid apps free, but that Wi-Fi Partner pays carriers or paid hotspots providers based on data consumed by end users.

It’s not a charitable endeavor for enabling every user to access the Internet at paid hotspots. Wi-Fi Partner is a for-profit company.

To access Wi-Fi Partner’s free service, users, with no need to pay money though, but have to do tasks, such as sharing given content to social networks, downloading given apps, shopping on e-commerce sites featured on Wi-Fi Partner’s website, etc. How many days they can use the free Wi-Fi service depends on the number of tasks they have completed. Or, users can opt-in to a monthly subscription of unlimited access for 30 yuan (about $4).
