    Connect devices to the Internet using your mobile data connection

    • Easy to use
    • No root required
    • Requires mobile and desktop software
    • Requires a USB cable
    • Needs data stats for better monitoring consumption

    "Internet everywhere"

    Now you can connect your desktop/laptop to the Internet even if you don't have an available connection around. You only need to, first, download and install desktop software Mac, Linux and Windows and, second, download and install the application (here the .apk.

    No root is required. However, you will need a USB cable to transfer mobile data connection from your phone to your computer (watch out for data plan limits).

    The app is really easy to set in both desktop and mobile version. Windows users also need to install the USB/ADB driver for their phone. Once all set and done, you can start surfing the web using your mobile data connection. Awesome, isn't it?

    ClockworkMod Tether is a USB tether solution for Mac, Windows, and Linux that allows you to use your phone's data connection to get internet access on your desktop or laptop.

    Need a direct link to the Tether Android installation (APK) file?

    Looking for the Premium version of ClockworkMod Tether? It is a $4.99 in app purchase, no additional download necessary!

    ClockworkMod Tether does not require root on your phone and does not require a separate tethering plan. Tether should work with any carrier and phone and does not require a carrier's tethering plan. To get around the root requirement on your phone, Tether will need to install a virtual network adapter on your computer; so there is a PC side install.

    1) Install this application on your Android phone!

    2) Install the Tether software on your PC. If your PC currently has an internet connection, you can download it here:

    If your PC does NOT have an internet connection at the moment, start Tether for Android and use the Help button to easily download the PC software to your phone. You can then copy it to your PC and install!

    Windows users will also need to install the USB/ADB driver for their phone. Tether's setup process will assist you through that step by step, or you can use the link below!

    That's it! Connect your phone via USB to your PC, start Tether, and turn it on! Happy surfing!

    If you have problems with Tether, please try the following first:
    Disable Firewalls and Antivirus software.
    Make sure you area not connected to the internet on wireless or ethernet.
    Make sure you are using your OEM's USB data cable (and not just a charge cable).
    If still not working, please contact and provide the log from the Tether log window!

    Tether is a 14 day trial. You will have full unfettered usage for 14 days, after which you will only be able to download 20MB a day. Please buy Tether Premium from the application's menu to unlock the full version and support future development!

    Tether speeds slow?
    Your USB speed is limited to the speed of the *slowest* peripheral you have connected. It is recommended you unplug any unnecessary/slow USB peripherals to get maximum Tether speeds.

    Need a direct link to the Windows Drivers?

    Works well but does it hide the fact that it's tethering from carrier

    Solid option for fast USB C tethering of modern gear. Beats WiFi efficiency handily on Pixel 2 Android O for Macbook Pro 2017 High Sierra

    It works, but due to no updates over a year, it is now severely broken. My carrier started to detect the connection and block the access, so I need to reset the connection every so often. Sometimes it can't find the desktop module to connect to even after dozens of retries. Sometimes it's randomly crashes. Sometimes connection just disappears and you need to restart the app itself.

    Doesn't work for all types of internet traffic it seems. Tried to log into a game(not even play, just open the client to keep a consecutive login) and it instantly disconnected.
