Mobile hotspots are such a great addition to smartphones. You do not need WiFi routers anymore as long as you have a smartphone and a good network connection. Thus, it becomes essential to explain how to make use of this hotspot feature.

I remember having to call my WiFi provider all the time because of how it would go down in thunderstorms and take days to resume its normal functionality. Thankfully, mobile hotspots were a lifesaver.
