● Remember to change your passwords and make it something tricky to avoid unwanted free WiFi loaders. The name of your network is the same name given to your phone. You can change it to something tricky or cool as per your wish.
● Keep a check on the number of devices connected. You should know how many devices are connected to ensure safe connectivity. You can remove a device from your hotspot network whenever you want. The more devices that are connected to your hotspot, the faster your data gets exhausted.
