    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.

    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, 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.

    I paid $8 for the full version 3 years ago, and haven't regretted it yet. Only problems I've had were installing on my laptops, which were user error.

    I think foxfi and pdanet are the only reliable working apps of their kind. I can't find the options menu in foxfi to access the foxfi+ addon features however and some advice on that would be great.

    Every couple months it'll get patched and not work for a few days for me. But all in all its worked almost every time I've needed it. Downloads super fast from my note 3. And has been stable enough to support online play for my console. I don't see any reason to not pay the 7 dollars and have the full version unlocked. I've been using it for years and gotten my money's worth out of it so many times over (grandfathered unlimited data with verizon).
