Finding the ios Private WiFI app for Business Accounts

We recently changed our US cell plan to a business account. AT&T texted us that there's a Private WiFi app in the ios App Store that we can use with our new plan, but we can’t find it. I've searched for about 30 minutes online and found a help article AT&T published about how to use it but they didn’t think to include links to the apps (there's an Android version too) in that article. 

 

Does anyone have a link to the elusive ios Private WiFi app?

Never heard of it. What is it supposed to do that's special for business accounts?

It allows you to create a Private WiFi with your phone that apparently also runs through a VPN. Here's a link to their webpage which shows how to use it...https://www.att.com/esupport/article.html#!/smb-wireless/KM1270458?gsi=56r.

I finally found the Private WiFi app. It's more complicated in just about every aspect than it should be, so rather than retype all the details I'll just link to the post I just finished about it.

 

Find AT&T’s New Private WiFi App | Find All AT&T Links

 

Summary:

  • The app is nearly impossible to find...I explain how to in the post.
  • It's a VPN that's really slick operationally but NOT Free it appears...but costs $2.00 per month to use.
  • This is all somewhat speculative on my part. No one from AT&T has confirmed yet despite my attempts.

Now that I've read your post, I grabbed the direct link for others: 

Private Wi-Fi by AT&T Services, Inc. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/private-wi-fi/id1399759129?mt=8

 

Please let us know what else you find out! And if it works well for you.

Once I found it in the app store (thanks to your blog post) I copied the link from iTunes.
