leave a comment »

SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — Within a month, Wifi Master Key (, an app that lets users crowdsource login credentials for WiFi hotspots, has become Google Play’s top tool app in four countries or regions.

The app most recently soared to the top of the tools app chart in Thailand, while also becoming the #3 most popular free app in the Play Store in the country on Oct 27.

The app’s rise to the top of the Thai Play Store’s tools app chart comes on the heels of it becoming also the #1 tool app in Taiwan last week. Last month, it became the #1 tool app in Malaysia and Vietnam.

The Shanghai-based unicorn company acknowledges that Thailand is the second largest economy in Southeast Asia, and is one of the most important markets for multinational corporations looking to seek overseas strategic investment opportunities and further develop international operations.

With the recent success, Wifi Master Key has joined the ranks of many Chinese technology companies, includingTencent, Baidu, and Alibaba, which have benefitted from the access to new customers, international business opportunities and new earnings growth drivers that Thailand has to offer, according to the company’s global team lead.

Since the fast-growing company set up a regional headquarters in Singapore in May, the app has seen a surge in popularity in Southeast Asia as it helps a growing community get online in the region. Meanwhile, the fact that Internet users around the world have increasingly embraced the “sharing economy” also supported the app’s meteoric rise.


Launched in September 2012, the company sets the record of being China’s youngest unicorn mobile Internet company to achieve a billion-dollar valuation earlier this year, after closing a $52 million Series A funding. As ofAugust 2015, the app has connected a total of 700 million users, 360 million monthly active users, and over 40 million connections daily.

Key features of the app include safe WiFi sharing without revealing shared passwords, in-built signal detector, customisable power saving settings, tethering function and more to enhance connectivity experience.
