The Internet is the heart and soul of the modern era. This calls for as much convenience as possible when it comes to internet usage. Thankfully, Android is no far behind when it comes to making the life of its users easier. Now you can easily use your Android phone as a Wifi hotspot and share your internet connection. Whether it is that you are feeling generous to help out your friend or use the internet on your laptop, your smartphone can turn out to be a pretty valuable asset. All you need is the perfect service plan that doesn’t drain out your data and savings. If you have one, you can turn almost any Android phone into a portable Wifi hotspot.
There are various tethering limits imposed on smartphone users. Fortunately, apps like FoxFi are there to help you modify your tethering limits. Although, it is recommended that you upgrade your plan instead. Rooting is another way to tamper the tethering limit but it exposes the user to malware. It is also recommended that you use a power bank or a battery case if you intend to frequently use the hotspot.
Considering the vast majority of Android users, we recommend installing apps such as Onavo Count to keep track of the data you are using. You can also try a few widgets on Google Play store to play around with the hotspot settings.

With the help of this inbuilt feature in Android smartphones, it has become a lot easier to share your device’s internet connection with other users. Mobile hotspots are much more convenient than USB tethering as you can accomplish the task wirelessly. Make sure you turn off the feature when not in use as it can significantly drain the battery and increase your device’s temperature. You can also change the default password to ensure extra protection from unauthorized access.
Even though internet tethering is a boon for smartphone users all over the worlds, you need to be careful as to how much data you are using. Also, make sure, your phone has enough battery backup as turning your Android phone into a hotspot can cause your battery to drain.
