What is a Captive Portal?

Captive Portal

A internet portal is a website that serves as an entry point or gateway to a specific area of interest. It provides links to content and other sites related to that area of interest. A portal may provide membership and the ability to contact or chat with other members. Portals earn revenue from membership fees and/or by selling advertising space on their webpages.

A captive portal is a webpage that is the only one on a website that a visitor is allowed to view until they meet the requirements of the webpage. It may be displayed to new visitors before they are granted access to the main website resources. A captive portal may be used present a page where prospective members may accept the website's EULA (End User License Agreement), make application and submit payment for membership, or if already a member, login.

Captive portals are commonly used by open wireless networks where the users are shown a message informing them of the conditions of access.
