How do I set up the Mobile Hotspot or tethering on my Galaxy S6 Edge?
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. You can connect up to eight wireless devices via Wi-Fi.
Important: Using your mobile device as a wireless access point or wireless modem is data-intensive and will dramatically reduce battery life. 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.
Note: The provided information refers to the devices sold in Canada. Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version (Android 5.0 Lollipop was used for this FAQ).
