Suspicious telus public wifi?

Are the #telus with 4 numbers after it apart of your public wifi? I see it in the same area that I go to eat. Maybe someone accidently unsecured their wifi connection or it's setup for devious reasons. No login screen popped up when I connected, I probably shouldn't connect at all?

Many small businesses will offer wifi by opening their network to outsiders. Until they experience some major negative issue arising from such offerings, they will continue to expose their network. Many Telus gateways are identified by the SSID TELUS####, where # is a digit between 0 and 9.

Hey @taim​ our public WiFi networks would have an SSID (network name) of #TELUS or #TELUSDirect. You can find more information here. You can also view a coverage map using our WiFi finder here


It sounds a bit odd. Is the location you mentioned on the WiFi finder tool?

The location is not on the Wifi finder tool.
