One person responded with their own life pro tip: “When you’re at a hotel that charges for wifi (or for faster wifi), get the password from the business center computer, which is probably connected to the employee wifi.”

I stayed at a hotel that only allowed 30 mins free WiFi every 24 hours on each device connected. To get around it, I found a setting in Windows 10 that lets you change your MAC address, and I just toggled it whenever I got kicked out of the wifi,” another person mentioned.

Get Out of Any Call Situation
