Most Android phones offer hotspot or tethering support so users can turn their mobile phone into a hotspot or wireless router to share internet connection with their laptop, tablet, or another mobile device. In this article we will explain how to set up hotspot tethering on Infinix phone so you can share your internet connection with other people or other devices of your own.
Unlock your Infinix mobile, head to Settings > Network & internet > Hotspot & tethering.
Then choose one of the tethering methods: Wi-Fi tethering, Bluetooth tethering or USB tethering.
Types of Tethering
These three types of tethering are common to most phones, not only Android phones, but also iPhone. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages.
- Wi-Fi sharing is easy and quick, supports sharing with multiple devices, and tends to drain the phone’s battery.
- Bluetooth is the slowest and allows sharing with one device at a time.
- A USB connection is faster, and the laptop simultaneously charges the smartphone.
My preferred connection type is Wi-Fi hotspot or tethering in most cases. Choose Wi-Fi hotspot, then set hotspot name, hotspot password, choose wireless encryption standard: WPA2-Personal, choose AP band between 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz, enable the option to turn off hotspot automatically if no devices are connected. Finally tap on the On/Off toggle to enable W-Fi hotspot on Infinix phone.
You can now go to connect other phones or devices to the Hotspot on Infinix mobile in the usual way you connect them to regular Wi-Fi networks.
Don’t forget to turn off Hotspot in Settings or from the Quick Settings & notifications panel when you’re finished tethering.
