A mobile hotspot lets you share your Verizon network connection with other devices so they can access the internet. Devices connect to your mobile hotspot using Wi-Fi. While devices are connected, you’re charged for any data they use according to your monthly data plan.
Many smartphones and tablets have a built-in Mobile Hotspot feature that you can access in your device’s Settings or the App menu. The feature may have a different name on your device (e.g., Personal Hotspot [iOS], Internet Sharing [Windows®] or Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot [Google™ Nexus devices]), but they do the same thing.
