CERTIFICATION FOR THE TRANSPORT SECTOR
Public WiFi services in the transport sector help to connect millions of passengers, people, customers and their devices every day, and a great user experience should begin at the moment they log in...
It is vital when providing a WiFi service that it is safe for passengers to use. Creating a great user experience for all by not allowing exposure to the viewing of harmful or illicet content when browsing the internet.
Organisations in the transport sector (such as train operators, bus, aviation, and transport terminals) have the ability to register for the Friendly WiFi certification and to display the colourful symbol. Becoming Friendly WiFi certified means they are independantly checked to prove their service blocks access to pornography and images and videos of illegal child sexual abuse material.
Friendly WiFi is a government-initiated safe certification standard for public WiFi. The Friendly WiFi symbol tells the WiFi users that the Public WiFi they are connecting to meets the minimum filtering standards – particularly in areas where children are present. In fact, UK Government asked the Rail Delivery Group to develop a package of measures for all operators comprising of a national commitment to sign up to the Friendly WiFi certification.
Friendly WiFi has already certified many organisations in the transport sector, with thousands of rail and bus vehicles proudly wearing the symbol and providing assurance to their passengers that the WiFi they are using is safe and protected.
"Becoming certified is simple, we do most of the work and we have helped many organisations in the sector to make sure their Public WiFi service meets the required standard"
