    FoxFi (WiFi Tether w/o Root)'s review

    Published: 2012-06-28, by .

    FoXFi allows you to tether even if you don't own a rooted device

    • Ease of use
    • Works properly
    • Some devices aren't compatible
    • There's no screen widget

    "WiFi tethering isn't a root privilege anymore"

    Tethering is turning your mobile device into a hotspot, that's it, an acces point. It takes your WiFi or data connection to provide access to other nearby device (computer, tablet, other smartphones...).

    Just launch the app and enable "WiFi Hotspot". You can also change network name and set a password, which uses WPA-PSK encryption. You can also leave it open, free access. FoxFi provides also Bluetooth mode for connections which seems to work for all phones. We say that because there are issues with some devices regarding WiFi mode. Check out developer's description in order to know if your device is on the list.

    There's also a FoxFi AddOn app that comes with extra features like hiding tether usage by setting a proxy server address in the computer browser. Check it out to know all the features that it brings.

    The app is simple and easy-to-use. We're just missing a widget (switcher) for enable/disable WiFi Mode. Good app.

    I paid for this to work and now it's useless. Also why are you installing a certificate that is monitoring all of my network traffic? Please fix this. Now it's not working at all with the new S8+

    If you have a Galaxy S7 Edge or S7 you can get around the Verizon Wi-Fi block. 1. Slightly remove the SIM card tray open. 2. Open up your settings app. Than open up Mobile Hotspot Wi-Fi tethering. 3. Press your SIM card back in and turn on the Mobile Hotspot. It might take a few tries but it should work.

    Worked amazing until i upgraded to 7.0. Hopefully there's support in the future.
