Are you on the go and in need of an internet connection? Look no further!

Android devices make it easy to find a hotspot wherever you are. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to find a hotspot on your Android device.

Step 1: Open Settings

First, open the settings on your Android device. You can usually find the settings app in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of your screen and tapping on the gear icon.

Step 2: Find Network & Internet

In the settings menu, scroll down until you find “Network & Internet” and tap on it to access the network settings.

Step 3: Locate Wi-Fi Settings

Within the “Network & Internet” menu, locate and tap on “Wi-Fi” to access your Wi-Fi settings.

Step 4: Enable Wi-Fi

If your Wi-Fi is currently turned off, toggle the switch to turn it on. This will allow your device to scan for available Wi-Fi networks.


If your Wi-Fi is already enabled, skip this step and proceed to Step 5.

Step 5: Scan for Networks

Your Android device will now start scanning for available Wi-Fi networks in your vicinity. Wait a few seconds until you see a list of networks appear on your screen.

  • Bold Networks: Some networks might be displayed in bold text. These are open networks that do not require a password to connect.
  • Underlined Networks: Other networks might be underlined. These are secure networks that require a password to connect.

Choose the network that suits your needs. If you’re in a public place like a café or library, it’s recommended to connect to a secure network to protect your data.

Step 6: Connect to a Network

Tap on the desired network from the list. If it’s an open network, your device will automatically connect. However, if it’s a secure network, you will be prompted to enter the password for that network.

Once connected, you will see a Wi-Fi icon in your device’s status bar indicating that you are connected to the internet via Wi-Fi.


Finding and connecting to a hotspot on your Android device is quick and easy. By following these simple steps, you can stay connected wherever you go. Remember, when connecting to public networks, exercise caution and only connect to secure networks whenever possible.
