  • How to set up Wifi Hotspot on Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro ?

    A

    Answered By Aashish Kumar | 1 years ago

    Your phone can be used to connect another phone, computer or tablet to connect to the internet using your internet. For sharing the service, another device should be connected via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or USB.

    Setting up a Hotspot is really simple as follows:
    1. Go to Settings and look for Hotspot and Tethering.
    2. Tap and turn on Wifi Hotspot.
    3. To change the authentication mechanism or password click Set up Wi-Fi Hotspot. (Select None for open Wifi network with no password)
     On the other device:
    1. Turn on Wi-Fi and search for your own network.
    2. Select it and enter a password if required.
    Note:
    If another device is connected via USB or Bluetooth, you need to turn on USB tethering and Bluetooth tethering respectively.
