Creating a Hotspot on Android

Do you often find yourself needing to share your mobile data with other devices? Android devices have a built-in feature that allows you to create a hotspot and share your internet connection with other devices. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of creating a hotspot on your Android device.

Step 1: Accessing the Hotspot Settings

To begin, go to the Settings app on your Android device. You can usually find it in the app drawer or by swiping down from the top of the screen and tapping on the gear icon.

Step 2: Tethering & Portable Hotspot

Within the Settings menu, scroll down and look for an option called “Tethering & portable hotspot.” Tap on it to access the hotspot settings.

Step 3: Enabling the Hotspot

In this section, you will find various options related to tethering and portable hotspots. Look for a toggle switch labeled “Portable Wi-Fi hotspot” or something similar. Enable this option by tapping on the switch.


Depending on your Android device and version of Android, these options may be located under different menus or have slightly different names. However, they generally follow a similar structure.

Step 4: Configuring Hotspot Settings

Once you have enabled the portable Wi-Fi hotspot, you can configure its settings by tapping on it. This will open up a new screen where you can customize your hotspot’s name (SSID) and password.

  • Name (SSID):
  • You can set a unique name for your hotspot that will be visible to other devices when they search for available Wi-Fi networks.

  • Password:
  • To ensure the security of your hotspot, it is recommended to set a strong password. This will prevent unauthorized access to your internet connection.

    After configuring the settings, tap on the “Save” or “OK” button to apply the changes.

    Step 5: Connecting to the Hotspot

    Now that your hotspot is enabled and configured, other devices can connect to it using the provided SSID and password. On the device you want to connect, go to its Wi-Fi settings and search for available networks. You should see your hotspot’s name in the list of available networks.


    The process of connecting to a Wi-Fi network may vary depending on the device and operating system. However, in most cases, you will need to enter the password you set for your hotspot during the connection process.


    Creating a hotspot on your Android device is a convenient way to share your internet connection with other devices. By following these steps, you can easily set up and configure a hotspot on your Android device.

    Remember to keep your hotspot secured with a strong password to prevent unauthorized access. Enjoy sharing your mobile data seamlessly!
