Whether youâ€™re working from your backyard, a park, or a bus, there are times when you need a Wi-Fi connection on your laptop and youâ€™re out of range of a network or public hotspot. Never fear: As long as you have your phone handy, you can deliver a personal and private network to your tablet or laptop in seconds.
To get started, youâ€™ll need to go to the network settings on your phone. Itâ€™s called different things depending on which Android phone youâ€™re usingâ€”Network & Internet on Android 10, Connections on One UI on Galaxy phones, etc.â€”but itâ€™ll be where you select your Wi-Fi network. Inside, look for a tab that says hotspotÂ or tethering.
