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 (e.g., Personal Hotspot [iOS], Internet Sharing [Windows®] or Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot [Google™ Nexus devices]), but does the same thing.
You can also buy devices that are strictly mobile hotspots. Visit our Mobile hotspot shopping page or go to our Mobile hotspot device FAQs to learn more.
