Share a mobile connection by hotspot or tethering on Android

Share a mobile connection by hotspot or tethering on Android
You can use your phone's mobile data to connect another phone, tablet, or computer to the internet. Sharing a connection this way is called tethering or using a hotspot. Some phones can share Wi-Fi connection by tethering.

Most Android phones can share mobile data by Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or USB.

Important: Some mobile carriers limit or charge extra for tethering. We recommend checking with your carrier.

Important: Some of these steps work only on Android 9.0 and up.

Turn on your hotspot
Swipe down from the top of the screen.
Tap Hotspot
If you don’t find Hotspot at the bottom left, tap Edit and drag Hotspot into your Quick Settings.

Turn on your hotspot

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.
If you don't want your hotspot to require a password:
Swipe down from the top of the screen.
Touch and hold Hotspot.
Under "Security," tap None.
Tip: You can share your phone's mobile data with up to 10 other devices via a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Extend battery life while tethering
Plug in your devices while tethering.
Turn off tethering connections when you're done with them.
If your phone can turn off your hotspot for you when no devices are connected, turn on that setting.
