    Default Whos using my hotspot?

    Is there a way where I can see who is using my hotspot when i enable it? It only shows "1 connection to personal hotspot" but doesnt show a name or anything. Thanks!

    the only thing using your hotspot are the devices you allow to connect to it. And i believe the only you can use it is with the password protection. But watch how you use it, i used mine for the first time today and lemme say the data goes fast.

    When using your device as a hot spot I would always make sure that you set up a WEP key and or password so no one can connect with your device and steal your data.
