A captive portal is a web page accessed with a web browser that is displayed to newly connected users of a Wi-Fi or wired network before they are granted broader access to network resources.

Moment of silence is a celebration to Israel’s 70th anniversary. Each person places their thumbs on their smartphone for 60 seconds while their phones sound a “siren” composed of one device playing the word “Yes” while the other plays “No”. If one of the participants releases their grip, they will need to start the ceremony all over again in order to access the Wi-Fi network.
