Hi to all! There are ten WiFi kiosks in New York already and they will add more in the nearest future. I suppose that it is done for location tracking of every person in New York so how can I avoid it?

Indeed, recently New York authorities have started a program of free WiFi access implementation across whole city. There are already 10 hotspots in payphone kiosks of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, and in the nearest future more of them will appear across the city. While it is primarily made for citizens and tourists to gain free WiFi access in any spot of the New York, this network can possibly be used to track everyone within it.
As far as I know, the next boroughs to be upgraded with such payphone kiosks with free WiFi hotspots would be Bronx and Staten Island. Every payphone with such hotspot has a special sign on it for people who needs to use it would not miss it. While WiFi hotspots are mostly used for indoor tracking (though it is not the only technology for that), if that WiFi network will be made across whole New York with high density of hotspots then it might be used for quite precise outdoor location tracking within that network.
But I guess you already realize that and want to get some answers, right? Don't worry, you can easily avoid be in tracked in such way with the help of New York WiFi payphone kiosk jammer that will protect you from all WiFi signals from those hotspots and won't let anyone to track you in that way.
