S7: How do I set up the Mobile Hotspot or tethering features on my Samsung Galaxy S7?

Last Update Date : Apr 25. 2018

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

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 is on.
