    Kindle fire 3rd generation query 9th Mar 18 at 10:10 PM
    I've used my Kindle Fire tablet when on holiday to access the internet on free Wifi in hotels etc.. However, today my OH was stuck in an airport terminal with a flight delay so he tried to use my Kindle but access to the free Wifi was denied with a message stating that the public access was not secure. We don't use the Kindle to do anything other than read books or access the internet to read newspapers. Is there any way around this? Technically, it rendered the tablet completely useless!

    Kindle uses the 'Silk' browser - maybe I should download something else?

    It can still be used as a e book reader so not useless.

    A change of browser probably wouldnt change anything, maybe a vpn would have been of use.
    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    Yes, I see what you mean. Guess I have to accept that security is the most important thing. Thanks for your help.
