Mobile hotspots allow you to share one device’s Internet connection with several others, via a temporary wireless network that you create. Typically you just set a network name and password on the device with an internet connection, then join that new network from the rest of the devices.
Sharing a connection this way is called tethering or using a hotspot. Some phones can share Wi-Fi connection by tethering.
Connect another device to your phone’s hotspot
- On the other device, open that device’s list of Wi-Fi options.
- Pick your phone’s hotspot name.
- Enter your phone’s hotspot password.
- Click Connect.
