A mobile Wi-Fi hotspot lets you share your smartphone’s network connection with your other mobile devices so they too can connect to the internet anywhere that you have mobile service. Most smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy and iPhone, have built-in features that allow you to quickly turn on a Wi-Fi hotspot from the Settings or App menu.

Using your smartphone’s mobile hotspot allows you to put extra security measures in place to help protect you and your private information.
