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

    • Easy to use
    • Extra features
    • It works properly
    • No widget
    • Issues with some devices

    "WiFi tethering isn't a root privilege anymore"

    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.

    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.
