I am looking for an app to share my Android phone's Internet connection to my computers.
- Open source
- Secure WiFi protocol
- Visible icon when running
- 1x1 widget to easily start/stop
Android provides the native ability to create a WiFi hotspot. On my phone, running 4.4.2, it's under "Mobile Hotspot". Mobile Hotspot allows you to define the mac address of the "allowed devices" that can connect to the hotspot. To simplify things, there's also a one touch widget in the app store that will allow the enabling/disabling of the hotspot. The widget I use is called WiFi HotSpot.
