You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to hide your WiFi hotspot on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. In order to have a hidden mobile hotspot, you need to check one box. We're going to show you where that box is.
First thing we need to do is swipe down from the top of our Galaxy Tab
Then, tap on the gear-shaped icon in the upper-right area
This will open up our "Settings" menu.
Tap on the fourth option on the left side, "Mobile hotspot and tethering"
Now, tap on the "Mobile Hotspot" section
Then, tap on the little "MORE" icon in the upper right-hand corner
Tapping once on "MORE" will give you three options.
Tap on "Configure Mobile Hotspot"
Tap on the "Hide my device" checkbox to check the option
Checking "Hide my device" means that your device will no longer show up on the list of available devices.
Next, tap on the toggle next to "Off" at the top of the screen
This will turn on your WiFi hotspot. You will receive a pop-up window reading "Turning on Mobile Hotspot will turn off WiFi".
Now, your mobile hotspot has been turned on.
In order to connect to the mobile hotspot, take another device
For this tutorial, let's use an iPhone.
On the iPhone, tap on the "Settings" icon
Once you tap on "WiFi", you will see that the device "VisiHow" does not show up.
In order to connect to the "VisiHow" WiFi, tap on "Other..."
Once you tap on "Other...", type the name of the network
It is "VisiHow" in this tutorial.
Then, tap on the "Security" section
Tap the chosen security for the network
It is the WPA2 security in this video.
Then, tap on the "Other Networks" back arrow
The password is shown on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 device. In this case, this is "ultq3625".
Type the password on the iPhone
Then, tap on "Join" in the upper-right corner
Once you've tapped "Join", you will be connected to the hidden network. You can also see that "iPhone" has appeared under "Connected devices". You can share the network with another person as well.
Then, just press the home button on the Galaxy Tab
You will go back to your home screen. Begin using the device as normal.
