download and login to the Xfinity Hotspots (Wifi) app. run it (leave it running all the time) and it will tell you when a connection is genuinely access (free) to use. it will have a line under the connection name to login to this for Xfinity service. you may see xfinitywifi, XFINITY, and a couple of others that are similar to CableTV but the 2nd line will have that login for Xfinity wifi. From what I can tell, the 2nd line is possible only because the secuirty app is running. IF you use a non-Xfinity wifi consider turning on free VPN app Windscribe. FWIW i wish Xfinity had a VPN app for security when not using their wifi access.
