Personal hotspot is a built-in feature in Android that allows us to easily share the internet connection with other devices and computers. We can find this feature in almost all smartphones, such as iPhone, Samsung, LG, Huawei, Xiaomi, Lenovo, Nokia, Sony, etc. See this guide to setup hotspot on Xiaomi phone just as an example. Today, we will show you how to quickly enable Wi-Fi hotspot on a Huawei phone so you can share you mobile data and internet connection with other devices or your friends.
Create Wi-Fi hotspot on Huawei phone
First of all, enable mobile data on Huawei phone from Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile network > Mobile data > ON.
Go back to the Wireless & networks screen in Settings, choose Tethering & portable hotspot > Portable Wi-Fi hotspot, turn on the Wi-Fi hotspot.
Then choose Configure Wi-Fi hotspot to set or find out the password for Wi-fi hotspot connection.
Enable Wi-Fi hotspot from notification center
In the future, you can simply pull down the notification center from the top of your Huawei phone to quickly enable Mobile data and portable hotspot. Then connect your laptop to Huawei phone Wi-fi hotspot without the need to manually type in its password as your PC or Mac will save the password for connected networks automatically.
Connect to Huawei hotspot from other phones and computers
On your PC, Mac computer or other mobile phones, turn on Wi-fi, search for your Huawei phone hotspot name, connect to it with the password provided in the Wi-fi hotspot configuration screen on your Huawei phone. It is just that easy.
Manage Wi-Fi hotspot connections on Huawei phone
By default the maximum connections via Wi-fi hotspot is set to 8 devices. We usually do not need to connect 8 devices to our phone at the same time. You can reduce to 1 or 2 from the hotspot settings.
If you find some unknown device connected to your phone, you can disconnect it from your Wi-Fi hotspot. You can turn off the hotspot on mobile, change the password for hotspot network, or even add a connected device to the Blacklist to prevent it from connecting to your phone again.
