"WiFi tethering isn't a root privilege anymore"

Reviewed by / Jun 28, 2012

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

This AddOn of FoxFi WiFi Tether comes with some interesting features: Notifications of WiFi client connections,

Web Proxy server on the phone that can be used to hide tether usage and Debug log sending.

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.

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

Developer's original description available here
FoxFi AddOn provides some optional features to the FoxFi application.

*FoxFi enables free WiFi Tether on your phone without rooting or a tether plan. Sprint and AT&T have removed FoxFi from Android Play Store. So if you could not find FoxFi in Play Store then please install or upgrade FoxFi from http://foxfi.com/bin, or scan the QR code in the third screenshot.

This version of FoxFi AddOn implements
1. Notifications of WiFi client connections.
2. A Web Proxy server on the phone that can be used to hide tether usage.
3. Debug log sending.

This FoxFi AddOn app is completely optional. Depending on which phone and carrier you have, it may or may not produce any benefit for FoxFi usage.

Once installed, use the menu in FoxFi to access AddOn features. Requires FoxFi version 1.90 or above.

Recently changed in this version

Version 3011 removes the extra app icon. Also fix some issues in 3001.

    I got this app for my permamounted tablet in my car. It worked great up until the latest verizon update patched the ability to do the wifi hotspot. I can apparently still do it over usb and bluetooth but I have not tried it yet. May end up going rooted on my phone.

    It works, but is VERY slow & dsnt stay on 4 very long. After about a ½ hour (if I'm lucky), it starts loading on me & dsnt stop. I jus end up turning it off. I use it to watch Netflix on my laptop. I don't hv WiFi or internet connection, besides my unlimited data on my Android. Do u kno anything that can help this last longer?
