what is hotspot , tethering and how to use on your smartphone

Your Android phone need not jealously guard its mobile data connection. It’s possible to share that Internet access in one of two ways. The first is to create a mobile hotspot, which allows any Wi-Fi-enabled gizmo to access the Internet via your phone. The second is a direct connection between your phone and another device, which is called tethering.


How to Create a mobile hotspot :

To share your phone’s mobile data signal with other Wi-Fi devices in the vicinity, heed these steps:


1) Open the Settings app.


2) Turn off the phone’s Wi-Fi radio.

Why create a Wi-Fi hotspot when one is already available?


3) Plug the phone into a power source.

The mobile hotspot feature draws a lot of power.


4) Tap the Back navigation icon to return to the main Settings app screen.


5)Choose the More item.

You’ll find the More item in the Wireless & Networks section of the Settings app. On some Samsung phones, locate the More item on the Connections tab, or you may find an item titled Mobile Hotspot and Tethering, in which case you can skip to Step 7.


6) Choose Tethering & Portable Hotspot.

This item might be titled Mobile Hotspot.


7) Slide the Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot master control to the On position.

On some phones, the item may be titled Mobile Hotspot. It might also feature a check box instead of a master control.

After the hotspot is active, you need to confirm some of the settings.


8) Choose Set Up Wi-Fi Hotspot.

On some Samsung phones, tap the MORE button and choose Configure Mobile Hotspot.

Tap the fields on the Set Up Wi-Fi Hotspot card to assign a name, security level, and password.


9) Tap the SAVE or OK button when you’re done setting options on the Set Up Wi-Fi Hotspot card.

The phone’s Wi-Fi hotspot can be accessed by any other mobile device or computer with a Wi-Fi radio


While the mobile hotspot is active, the Hotspot Active status icon appears, similar to the one shown in the margin


To turn off the mobile hotspot, repeat the steps in this section, but disable the setting in Step 7.


  • Your phone’s capability to create a mobile hotspot can be limited by the cellular provider. Some require an extra subscription (fee) before you can access this feature.


  • Some phones may features a Mobile Hotspot or 4G Hotspot app. If so, use it instead of following the steps in this section.


  • The range for the mobile hotspot is about 30 feet. Items such as walls and tornadoes can interfere with the signal, rendering it much shorter.


  • The default Wi-Fi hotspot password is your phone number.


  • When you use the mobile hotspot, data usage fees apply. When a crowd of people are using the hotspot, a lot of data is consumed rather quickly.


  • Be sure to turn off the mobile hotspot when you’re done using it.


Tethering the Internet connection :

A more intimate way to share the phone’s mobile data connection is to connect the phone directly to a computer and activate the tethering feature. Follow these steps to set up tethering:


1) Use the USB cable to connect the phone to a computer or laptop.

I’ve had the best success with his operation when the computer is a PC running Windows.


2) Open the Settings app and choose the More item, found in the Wireless & Networking area.

On some Samsung phones, choose the Mobile Hotspot and Tethering item, which may be found on the Connections tab.


3) By the USB Tethering item, slide the master control to the On position.

On some phones, choose the Tethering item and then activate USB Tethering.


The other device should instantly recognize the phone as a “modern” with Internet access. Further configuration may be required, which depends on the computer using the tethered connection. For example, you may have to accept the installation of new software in Windows.


To end the connection, repeat Steps 2 and 3 in this section, but disable tethering in Step 3. Then you can disconnect the USB cable.


  • While tethering is active, the Tethering status icon may appear, similar to the one shown in the margin.


  • Sharing the mobile data connection incurs data usage charges against your cellular data plan. Be careful with your data usage when you’re sharing a connection.
