Requirements for mobile hotspots

To use your device as a mobile hotspot, make sure you have:
  • A capable device. Most of our smartphones and tablets work as mobile hotspots. A mobile hotspot provides a secure internet connection for other devices through Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth, or a USB cable. 
  • A compatible data plan. Many of our plans are compatible with mobile hotspots. If your AT&T unlimited or Mobile Share® plan isn’t, learn how to change or update your plan.

Want to check your plan info from your mobile device? Get the myAT&T app. Text and data rates may apply for download and use.
