How to Use Galaxy Note 9 as a Mobile Hotspot

You can use your Samsung Galaxy Note 9 as a mobile hotspot to share its internet connection with you other devices. In order to do so, it must have an internet connection via mobile data and while this is actually a really good, being a mobile hotspot is only as good as the amount of data allocated to your account each month.

When mobile hotspot is enabled and properly configured, your Galaxy Note 9 will start to broadcast an SSID in which you can connect your other devices to. Take note that the data is used by those that are connected to the mobile hotspot as well as by the host so 1GB of data may be used up in a matter of minutes.
