– This will open the Mobile Hotspot settings.
– Tap on the toggle switch to turn on the WiFi hotspot.
– You can also customize the hotspot name and password by tapping on “Set up Wi-Fi hotspot” or similar options.
– Once the hotspot is enabled, other devices can connect to it using the provided name and password.

2. Tethering via Personal Hotspot (iPhone):

– Tap on “Personal Hotspot” or “Mobile Data” and then “Personal Hotspot.”
– Turn on the Personal Hotspot toggle switch.

3. Sharing WiFi via Bluetooth (Android and iPhone):

– On the device you want to share the WiFi from, go to the Bluetooth settings and enable “Bluetooth Tethering” or a similar option.
– On the device you want to connect to the shared WiFi, go to Bluetooth settings and pair it with the device sharing the WiFi.
– Once paired, the device should automatically connect to the shared WiFi network.

4. Sharing WiFi via USB (Android only):
