Rawstream for Chromebooks – Support for public wifi hotspots

The latest release of the Rawstream for ChromeOS Agent – version 3.0.8 is out – and we’ve included a key feature that you’ve been asking for!

Rawstream for Chrome allows you to monitor web traffic for Chromebooks and other ChromeOS devices. Very handy for schools and businesses who are moving to a Google ecosystem. The agent works everywhere, including off-campus network. With this release, Chromebook users running the Rawstream Agent can now connect via public wifi hotspots that require the user to log in or accept the terms of service before allowing access to the internet.

The image above was taken by one of our of team from the Shard, London while testing out the new public wifi support in the 3.0.8 release. The heights we go to to test our releases!
