This guide will show you two ways to find your hotspot password on your Samsung device: through the Settings menu and the Quick Settings panel.

A mobile hotspot on your Samsung phone or tablet lets you share your mobile data connection with other devices like laptops, tablets, and even other smartphones. This is useful when you lack Wi-Fi access, but remember, using mobile data can quickly deplete your data allowance.

To connect other devices to your Samsung’s mobile hotspot, they’ll need the hotspot password. This password acts as a security measure, ensuring only authorized devices can access your mobile data.

Common Problems with Samsung Hotspot Password and their Fixes

While finding your Samsung hotspot password is usually straightforward, occasional issues can arise. As readers of our blog, you might encounter some common problems, and we want to share our experiences and recommendations to help you resolve them.

1. Password not displayed or showing incorrectly:

  • Solution: This could be a temporary glitch. In our experience, restarting your Samsung device can often fix this issue. If the problem persists, we recommend navigating to Settings > Connections > Mobile Hotspot and Tethering > Mobile Hotspot > Configure. Here, you can view the actual password and ensure its accuracy. Additionally, we suggest updating your device software to the latest version (Settings > Software update > Download and install).

2. Unable to connect to the hotspot using the displayed password:

  • Solution:
    • Double-check the password: Ensure you’re entering the password correctly, including any uppercase letters, special characters, and numbers.
    • Verify network name: Make sure you’re connecting to the correct Wi-Fi network name displayed in your hotspot settings.
    • Restart devices: In our experience, restarting both your Samsung device and the device trying to connect to the hotspot can sometimes resolve minor connection issues.

3. Hotspot password not strong enough:

  • Solution: It’s crucial to use a strong and unique password for your hotspot to prevent unauthorized access. In this case, we recommend navigating to Settings > Connections > Mobile Hotspot and Tethering > Mobile Hotspot > Configure and choosing a password that includes a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters. We suggest avoiding easily guessable information like your birthday or name.

4. Hotspot functionality disabled by carrier:

  • Solution: Some mobile carriers might restrict hotspot functionality on specific plans. If you encounter this issue, we advise contacting your carrier to confirm if your plan allows hotspot usage and if any additional configuration is required.

Important Note:

While troubleshooting these issues, we strongly advise against any methods that involve modifying system settings or using unauthorized software. In our experience, these practices can potentially harm your device or compromise your security.
