What is Captive Portal?
A captive portal is a web page which is displayed to newly connected users before they are granted broader access to network resources.
When a potential user first logs on to an SSID (Network Name) with a captive portal, a Web page (landing page) is encountered which requires certain actions (key-in personal details such as Phone No/E-mail) before Internet access is granted.
