Turn your device into a Wifi hotspot which you can use from any device or console. Note: rooted device is not needed.


FoxFi (WiFi mode) now comes with PdaNet for USB or Bluetooth mode. You can now share your cell phone's Internet connection with your computers or tablets through either USB, Bluetooth or even WiFi Hotspot on compatible phone models (see below). Most importantly it does not require the extra tether plan (mobile hotspot plan) from your carrier or rooting your Android phone.
Free edition of FoxFi will require you to restart after some usage, otherwise it is same as full version.

Sprint and AT&T may not allow you to install our app from Play Store, please install the apk file directly from, or install on the computer side from

======WiFi Mode==========
Due to lockdowns through each phone system update, WiFi mode will only be allowed on a short list of compatible devices. As of April 2015, IN GENERAL,
---Verizon Samsung phones (S3/4/5, Note 2/3/4) , Verizon LG phones (G2/3) and Verizon Sony phones (Z3) are supported with all Android versions including Android 5.0/5.1.
---Verizon HTC phones (M7/8) will only work on Android 4.1 ~ 4.4.
---Verizon Motorola phones will only work on Android 4.3 or below.
---Straight Talk phones will only work if it uses Verizon and is one of the above.
---AT&T Samsung phones will only work on Android 4.2 or below.
---Other carriers/phones will only work if they still have Android 4.0 or below.
---For all other phones, use USB mode or Bluetooth mode instead. If you absolutely need a WiFi hotspot, see below for 'WiFi Share'.
*To get around lockdowns on WiFi mode FoxFi may prompt you to install a certificate on your phone, this will cause the Android system to enforce a screen lock and show a security message in notification. For more detail and steps to remove screen lock please visit
*If you receive a message asking for a 'password for credential strorage' this is due to a bug in the Android system. Please see steps to clear this message at

======USB Mode=========
USB mode works on almost all Android phones. It allows connection from Windows PC or Mac. In addition, PdaNet comes with a 'WiFi Share' feature that can further turn the Windows PC into a WiFi Hotspot so that you can connect other devices to it and share your phone's Internet connection.

*T-Mobile or MetroPCS users can only use USB mode with 'Hide Tether Usage' enabled in PdaNet. This will break Netflix however.
*If your phone is not recognized by your computer after connecting USB, please see
*Please treat Windows tablets (non RT) the same as Windows PC.

======Bluetooth Mode======
Bluetooth mode allows connection from Windows PC, Android tablets (excludes Android 4.4) or devices that supports Bluetooth DUN.

*A system bug in Android 4.4 for tablets will break Bluetooth mode, this is fixed in Android 5.0 or later.
*For Android tablets it is possible only the browser app will work in Bluetooth mode. That is because other apps may be looking for wifi or cell phone connection and not recognize the Bluetooth Internet.
*One way around the above two issues is to find a wifi hotspot to connect the tablet to at the same time (such wifi hotspot does not need to provide Internet access).
