  1. Before tethering the internet connection, you need to always ensure the following:
  • Active Internet connection: An active internet connection is always mandatory to be present on your phone to perform the internet sharing. If this is not present, the tethering would be successful, but the applications based on internet won’t be functional.
  • Fully charged Battery: Mobile tethering consumes a lot of battery. So, you should always make sure that your android phone is fully charged prior to tethering.
  • Ample network coverage: The basic dependency of mobile speed is entirely based on the mobile network. So, in case you have a poor mobile network, you might face issues with the network speed.

You can always choose to skip this level, but it is highly recommended to secure your WIFI hotspot with a password that you can remember. This will save your WIfI hotspot from the vulnerability and security risks, data theft etc.
