How to Use Lawson Free Wi-Fi

Lawson is a beloved chain of convenience stores throughout the country, easily recognized by its iconic blue sign. The convenience store has even ramped up its convenience by providing free Wi-Fi service—on top of its fantastic selection of products, that’s especially useful when on the go!

Connecting to Lawson Wi-Fi is simple, doesn’t require an application download, and best of all, is completely free. It’s important to know that while it's offered at many locations, it isn’t available in all stores, so look for the Lawson Free Wi-Fi symbol displayed on the store’s facade.

Once you’ve confirmed that it's available at the store, turn the Wi-Fi setting on your device on, and search for the SSID: LAWSON_Free_Wi-Fi. After connecting, open your browser and follow the registration instructions; you’ll need to agree to the terms of use, and register an email address, which will remain valid for one year before needing to be re-entered into the system.

It’s as easy as that! Lawson Wi-Fi is available for use for 60 minutes, up to five times per day. Certain websites containing material unsuitable for minors may be restricted from access, and the service is unavailable during the scheduled maintenance period, from 1:00-5:00 a.m. on Wednesdays.
