How to share phone's Wi-Fi connection using Bluetooth?

There are plenty of reasons to share our Wi-Fi connection with other devices, Let's suppose, my neighbor wants me to share my Wi-Fi so he can send an email. What I’m going to do? should I give him my Wi-Fi password? Or should I plan something so he can access my Wi-Fi only once to just send his email? - I think the second option is more secure.

There are several ways to share our phone's data with other devices without giving the password and this act is known as "Tethering". We have many type of tethering but the most simple and secure type is the "Bluetooth tethering".

In this tutorial, we will learn how we can share our phone's network with other devices over Bluetooth. Get your phone online using a Wi-Fi connection and then you'll be ready to configure the connection for sharing with other devices. You just need to follow the given steps with no skip step.



Bluetooth tethering is significantly slower than Wi-Fi, but uses less battery. We can only tether one device at a time via Bluetooth. Probably it’s not a good idea to use Bluetooth tethering unless you're really trying to save your battery.
