    Which variant of the S8 do you have? Is it network locked? A lot of US carriers remove the hotspot functionality as they don't allow tethering.

    More likely those stingy at spring don't have that feature..but you are in luck..there's always a way around..here's FoxFi..it's a tool to give you access to your hidden hotspot..but the FoxFi AddOn I cannot share it with you..that you would have to pay for in the Google play store..it's about $7..One time..very very very worth..It will give you peace of mind..

    Let me know.

    No, i installed FoxFi but there is an error which is ' fail to activate hotspot: fail to enable hotspot. Your carrier may not allow WIFI hitspot mode on this phone. In that case please use USB mode or Bluetooth mode instead using our app.'
    I watched an video on youtube, someone was expaining how to enable hidden hotspot on quick menu. He added some code to software of phone and it was working. I couldn't find that video. Maybe it was root, i cant remember clearly. Do you know anything about it?
