- Open your P30 Pro by unlocking your screen.
- Swipe down on the top of your home screen so you can see the different options.
- Open the ‘Hotspot’ function by tapping on it.
- Choose a hotspot name, this could be anything and is usually already filled in with the phone’s name.
- Choose a Password you want to use to secure your personal wifi hotspot
- Switch on the slider next to your hotspot name
- Enjoy your hotspot by browsing the internet on any nearby device.
It’s that simple!
