You must first launch a mobile hotspot before you can connect your laptop to it. Depending on your device and whether it’s an iOS or Android phone, the procedure varies a little. However, it is possible in both scenarios.

Once your mobile hotspot is up and running, follow these steps to connect your laptop to the hotspot’s Wi-Fi network.

  1. Start up your laptop and log in if necessary, then, if it isn’t already, enable Wi-Fi.

  2. If you’re on Windows 10 or 11, select the Wi-Fi icon in the taskbar to access the list of available Wi-Fi networks. Locate your mobile hotspot in the list and select it (if you’re unsure what its SSID is, check your phone’s hotspot menu). Then select Connect.

    Note: In macOS, the Wi-Fi symbol is in the top-right status bar. You should see a list of available Wi-Fi networks, with your iPhone listed at the top under Personal Hotspot. Select it. If you don’t see the Wi-Fi symbol in the macOS status bar, navigate to Apple Menu System Preferences Network then select Wi-Fi in the sidebar and select Show Wi-Fi status in the menu bar.

  3. In both Windows and macOS, you will then be prompted for the network password. You’ll be able to see this password on your Android or iOS smartphone, so check it there, and then type it into your laptop.


Note: As long as the password was input correctly, you should then be automatically connected to the hot spot Wi-Fi network and can browse the internet or perform any other connected tasks as if you were using your phone.
