    "Select the WiFi networks which are mobile hotspots.
    Apps can be restricted from using these networks when in the background. Apps may also warn before using these networks for large downloads." This can be a very useful function because it allows us to mark which WiFi is our Mobile Hotspot. What that means is that apps can behave differently. If it's Mobile Hotspot and maybe it's not secure and therefore we don't want some apps to be working with these Mobile Hotspots. Or we don't want to download large amounts of information because it could be very slow. We'd rather wait and we don't want to partially download it because it takes time and it actually takes space and memory. We don't want to do that. We want to wait until we have an actual WiFi connection. It can be very useful to do this. In order to do it, we'll have a list of our WiFi networks. This example only has one, but we will probably have a lot more. We can see that there is a box. Press on the box.

    That puts a checkbox in the box.
    This WiFi network has now been marked as a Mobile Hotspot. We can change the functions of the application so that they now behave differently, once they know that there is a Mobile Hotspot and that they are using a Mobile Hotspot.

    If we want to turn off this option, we don't want to mark this WiFi network as a Mobile Hotspot then press down on the box until the checkmark has disappeared.
