How to Set Up and Use Personal Hotspot on Note 8

One of the things that are useful or what we look for when we are out is Internet Connection. If we don’t have Mobile Network Data in our plan, it is a convenience for us to check and catch up to other people if there is WIFI.

If you are with friends, and you’re the only one with Mobile Network Data, you can actually share it among them. You, then, become a “Hotspot” and you can tell them the password, so that they are able to share your data with you.

Many devices have the same feature, and we can tell you the easy procedure on how to enable your Hotspot in your Samsung Note 8.
