Using your PC as a mobile hotspot

Normally, many smartphones and iPhones allow you to use either as a mobile hotspot. However, with your Windows 10-based PC, you need a mobile data connection in order to use it as a mobile hotspot. If you enable it, you can share a Wi-Fi, Ethernet, or mobile data connection. Keep in mind that it will use data from your data plan. Just a reminder: a mobile data normally comes from many SIM cards. To use your Windows 10-based PC as a mobile hotspot: 1. Press WINDOWS LOGO + I and click "Network & Internet" > "Mobile hotspot." 2. For "Share my Internet connection from," choose the Internet connection that you want to share. 3. Select "Edit," enter a new network name and password, and then click "Save." 4. Enable "Share my Internet connection with other devices." 5. Use your other device to connect to your Windows 10-based PC's mobile hotspot.
