Mobile Hotspot - moto g7 power

How can I share the moto g7 power internet connection?

Want to use the internet on a laptop computer or tablet but don't have a connection? You can share your phone's cellular data connection with multiple devices by turning your phone into a Wi‑Fi hotspot. 

Note: Your cellular plan must support data sharing. If you don’t know, contact your carrier.

Set up Wi‑Fi hotspot
  1. Check that cellular data is on. If cellular data is off, your phone doesn't have an internet connection to share.
  2. Go to Settings > Network & internet > Hotspot & Tethering.
  3. Touch Wi-Fi Hotspot and do any:
    • To make it easier to identify your hotspot when connecting to it, change the network name for your hotspot.
    • To prevent others from seeing your phone's network name, check Hide my device.
    • To see the current password, touch Advanced > Hotspot password.
    • If the hotspot signal is experiencing interference, touch Advanced and change the broadcast channel/band to 5GHz. If the hotspot signal seems weak, change it to 2GHz. (This feature is not available in all countries.)

Connect devices to hotspot
  1. Check that cellular data is on. If cellular data is off, your phone doesn't have an internet connection to share.
  2. Go to Settings > Network & internet > Hotspot & Tethering.
  3. Touch Wi-Fi Hotspot and turn it on , then plug in your phone to charge. Using the hotspot really drains the battery!

    When your hotspot is active, you'll see  in the status bar.
    Tip: The first time you turn the hotspot on,  is added to quick settings. After that, just swipe the status bar down and touch  to turn the hotspot off/on.
  4. To connect a device, open the device’s Wi-Fi settings, select your phone’s hotspot and enter the hotspot password. Learn how to find the hotspot's password.
To disconnect devices from your hotspot, touch Wi-Fi Hotspot and turn it off. When you turn it back on, devices with the password can connect automatically. To prevent this, change the password.

Manage hostpot connections
 
By assigning a password when you set up your hotspot, you ensure that people can't connect to your hotspot without your knowledge or permission.
 
To disconnect all devices and prevent users from reconnecting:
  1. Turn the hotspot off.
  2. Change the password.
  3. Turn the hotspot back on to continue using it.
Tip: When no devices are connected, the hotspot turns off automatically. To adjust this setting, go to Settings > Network & internet > Hotspot & tethering > Wi-Fi hotspot > Advanced > Turn off hotspot automatically.

View or change hotspot password

  1. Go to Settings > Network & internet > Hotspot & tethering.
  2. Touch Wi-Fi Hotspot.
  3. Touch Advanced > Hotspot password to see the current password.
  4. To change the password, type over the current password.
Note: Although you can turn off passwords for your hotspot, keeping a password prevents unauthorized usage of your cellular data.
