You're watching VisiHow. In the previous tutorial, we
turned on the developer menu. This is a tutorial on how to turn off mobile WiFi hotspot on the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
In order to turn off, or disable, the hotspot on your Galaxy S6, swipe down from the top of the screen
This will open up the notification panel. You will see that you have "Tethering or hotspot active".
You can tap on "Tethering or hotspot active"
Alternatively, the quickest and the easiest way is to tap the "WiFi" icon
A single tap on the "WiFi" icon will bring up a menu informing you that if you turn on WiFi, you will turn off the mobile hotspot.
However, let's tap on "CANCEL" right now
You will go back to the home screen.
Again, swipe down from the top of your phone to open the notification panel
Now, tap on "Tethering or hotspot active"
Now, you can tap on "Off"
Alternatively, let's press the home button to go back to the home screen
Let's close "Mobile Hotspot" by pressing "x" in the right-hand corner of the screen
Go back to the home screen by pressing the home button
Swipe down once more from the top of your screen
If you don't have "Tethering or hotspot active" icon, you may not want to turn on WiFi and Bluetooth because those will also turn off "Mobile Hotspot".
Tap on the "Settings" button
Tap on "Mobile hotspot and tethering"
You will see that "Mobile Hotspot" is on.
Now, just tap on the green toggle to turn off "Mobile Hotspot"
When you've finished, you can choose to which wireless network you want to connect by tapping it
If you don't want to connect to WiFi network, just press the home button to go back to the home screen
