[Galaxy Note 5] How do I set up the Mobile Hotspot or tethering features?

Mobile Hotspot


The Mobile Hotspot feature lets you share your mobile device’s data connection with other devices by turning your device into a wireless access point other Wi-Fi® enabled devices can connect to. You can connect multiple devices via Wi-Fi.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Turn On the Hotspot

We recommend contacting your wireless service provider to ask about availability with your plan. We also recommend keeping your device plugged in while the hotspot feature is on.
