DS Connect is a secure Wifi portal designed in your image for your guests and visitors.

Security and Privacy When Using Public Wi-Fi in a Hotel

Before users can connect to a public Wi-Fi network, they must first be redirected to a secure captive portal. This portal typically displays the Terms of Service (ToS) of the internet service provided by the hotel.

Depending on its policies, the hotel may also require users to provide additional personal information to strengthen the authentication process. This data may include names, email addresses, dates of birth, etc. However, this will only be done with the visitors’ prior consent.

This will make it possible to archive all the connections of the guest’s equipment, which may be requested by authorities, including the judicial police or agencies specialized in the fight against terrorism. Note that the refusal to provide this information is punishable by a €30,000 fine.
