How to Get Free Wifi Anywhere in Korea

You’re traveling to Korea and looking for some free wifi hotspots you can leech off of. Starbucks, McDonalds, and even taxis offer free wifi, but for some reason, the passwords aren’t made so clear. Fear not. Here’s how you can unlock free wifi anywhere you go in Korea!

Korea has a number of popular routers that come with factory set passwords. Although people do change it, a surprising number of people leave the factory password as is. Many businesses and major corporations in Korea also regularly offer wifi, but don’t readily reveal their passwords. If you want to get free wifi in Korea, find the wifi name below and try out the password. It’s not guaranteed to work, but chances are high that you’ll be scoring some free wifi anywhere you go in Korea!

If these passwords don’t work, remember to check out these 10,000 places to get free wifi in Seoul!

Lastly, do remember that free Wi-Fi hotspots may not always be secure.  To prevent data theft through these networks, you can opt for a VPN for Korea with local servers.  Premium services like ExpressVPN are recommended since they not only provide security, but also speed thanks to their dedicated online traffic tunnels.

    password works . my korean neighbor has this mylgnet router now im using the net for free ^_^

  6. 0xff says:

    There also used to be LG U+ networks in Seoul metro, but the usable ones disappear recently… Anyways, for SSID “U+ Zone” (exactly this one! not “U+zone” for example) the password is “lguplus100” (first letter is small L)… Some times this password also works for other U+ networks, like “U+village”, but rare though

  7. Ben says:

    Currently travelling in Korea and will test out the default passwords if I see them.

    Depending where I am I can sometimes find a free wifi but quality and speeds differ.

    iptime = no password needed and great speeds!

  10. Nico says:

    There are lots of ways to get free wifi in Seoul, but I decided to pay for olleh wifi, it’s fast and you can find it everywhere.
    just go to the convenience store nearby and ask for OLLEH WIFI and they will print the pin number on the receipt.
    its really inexpensive (1100won/hr, 3300won/day which is only about $1/hour, $3/day) and you can use it everywhere in seoul, have fun in seoul !

    any username/password for T Wifi zone ??

  13. johndoe says:

    T Wifi zone is a paid service but offered free to subscribers of SKT.
    SKT keeps a list of subscribers’ device MAC address so only these valid MAC addresses have access to the internet. Other MAC addresses are redirected to a website where you have to pay.
    You can either pay or you can clone the device MAC address of someone you know that uses SKT like I do (not exactly “legal” but they don’t know that lol).

    • Muhammad Usman says:

      How do you clone it? I am an SKT subscriber myself. I had a t wifi zone access .. But after I upgraded my iPhone. I am unable to use T wifi Zone and T Wife zone secure .. I wanna use it again freely .. can you help?

    According to my friend, Olleh WiFi connection can be had for free using installed apps like Facebook and Twitter. You can’t browse on Chrome/Firefox, but you can access the net via apps, as long as you’re connected to Olleh. She told me this trick after my Seoul trip, so I wasn’t able to really experience it, sad to say.
