Ignore these hotspots. Many will be proxies for selling OpenZone access or similar, others will be malevolent, others will simply not be working as advertised.

Sadly. Stick to places you KNOW have free Wi-Fi and CHECK their access point name before connecting.

And even THEN, be careful about logging into anything confidential over that access point - you never know who may be eavesdropping or doing a 'man in the middle' attack!
