  2. Then go to “Tethering & portable hotspot” and tap on it.
  3. The next thing to do is to switch on the WI-FI hotspot of your Android phone. While switching it on, you have to make sure that the phone you’re planning to share to already have its WI-FI switched on.
  4. After that, a connection process will start running and the device will detect your hotspot user ID. Then tap on it to start setting up the connection. But in some cases, if you have a password on your WI-FI, you’ll be required to input it to unlock the security set up.
  5. Then finally, you then have to switch on your data connection in order to start browsing.

Note: Remember that switching on WI-FI hotspot is different from switching on normal WI-FI network. If you’re sharing, your WI-FI will be switched, on while the device you’re sharing to will have its WI-FI network switched on.
