FoxFi (WiFi Tether w/o Root)

A new WiFi Direct solution (free update) is now added to PdaNet for connecting computers or tablets in addition to USB tether. The legacy WiFi Hotspot solution remains in FoxFi. If the legacy FoxFi feature still works for your phone, it is still the best solution for sharing phone Internet since there is no limit on what kind of devices you can connect.

======(New)WiFi Direct Hotspot=======
This new WiFi Direct feature in PdaNet 5 allows you to connect WiFi mode from computers or tablets. However unlike the old WiFi Hotspot, it will require you to either install PdaNet on the connecting computers/tablets or set up proxy settings. Use this feature if you are no longer able to turn on WiFi Hotspot, or if your WiFi Hotspot usage is being metered when you already have an unlimited data plan.

======(Legacy)WiFi Hotspot=====
Android 7.0 (Nougat) or later no longer allows the old WiFi Hotspot mode even for Verizon phones. Please refer to PdaNet instead for alternative solutions.

Due to lockdowns through each phone system update, the old WiFi mode will only be allowed on a short list of compatible devices. As of 11/2016, IN GENERAL:
---Android 7.0 (Nougat) or later no longer allows WiFi mode even for Verizon phones.
---Verizon Samsung phones (S3/4/5/6/7/Edge, Note 2/3/4/5 etc.) , Verizon LG phones (V10, G2/3/4/5 etc.) and Verizon Sony phones (Z2/Z3) are supported by Android versions up to Android 6.0/6.1.
---Verizon HTC phones (M7/8) will only work on Android 4.1 ~ 4.4.
---Verizon Motorola phones will only work on Android 4.3 or below.
---AT&T Samsung phones will only work on Android 4.2 or below.
---Other carriers/phones will only work if they still have Android 4.0 or below.
---Straight Talk phones will only work if it uses Verizon and are compatible with the above.
---For all other phones, use USB mode or Bluetooth mode instead.

*To get around lockdowns on WiFi mode FoxFi may prompt you to install a certificate on your phone, this will cause the Android system to enforce a screen lock and show a security message in notification. For more detail and steps to remove screen lock please visit
*If you receive a message asking for a "password for credential strorage" this is due to a bug in the Android system. Please see steps to clear this message at

Free edition will turn off after timed usage limit but you can turned it back on, otherwise it is same as full version.

As of March 2019, this no longer works. As most people know, this is now just the license key for the full version of PdaNet+. The PdaNet+ app no longer recognizes this license key. At the bottom where it used to say something about \"registered: FoxFi key installed\" it now just says \"Checking Full Version ...(5)\". Clicking on Checking Full Version opens a new dialog box, and if I click \"UNLOCK WITH KEY APP\", instead of accepting that FoxFi is installed, it says this instead: FoxFi Key: \"This app was built for an older version of Android and may not work properly. Try checking for updates, or contact the developer\". F%[email protected]#\u0026!!!! Until this week, I would have given the app 5 stars because it worked incredibly well. If this is fixed, I'll update the review accordingly.

I pay 75 dollars to tmobile every month. I dont use the hide tether option, but this app has been reliably supplying me with Effective wifi and tether for 4 years over at least half a dozen phones. upgrading to an s10 I realize the pdanet app is actually faster than the easier to use built in hotspot. Never regretted purchasing. though to be fair I'm using tether with pdanet

this was the best app and the only one that worked, it worked perfect everytime for 4 months then all of sudden in april it stopped. Its so slow its not even worth using exept in desperation if u have hours to spend on what use to take seconds, please fix this app was a life saver. ive emailed support twice and got only automatic response and no actual help.

It's providing internet to other devices, but is it actually working? Android 5.1 is on this phone. How can I tell if it actually blocks cricket wireless from knowing I'm using my phone as a hotspot? Before I installed foxfi cricket sent me a message saying they know I'm using my phone as a hotspot, and they dont like it because I'm not paying an extra $10. I've been using 40 gigs a month.

PDANet \u0026 FoxFi user here, the app works but compatibility with Phones and Android Versions do vary, it works much less on Android 7 \u0026 8. However there is a trick that works for me so it may work for you: Enable the hotspot normally and then through FoxFi, click the 3 dots next to the version numbers and click on Run Proxy, you should get the message saying it's running, reconnect any devices to your hotspot and it should work.

I used to love this app but now I have mixed feelings about it. I just got to know because I used to be able to connect my mobile device to foxfi in order to use it as a hotspot for my ps4 but then all of sudden this latest update is telling me I have internet but I can't use it for gaming. Do I have to use a laptop or a computer for the LGK20 or is there another way for me to use pdanet without the laptop/computer or USB debugging. If not all I ask is it possible can y'all make it possible in the next update to allow people such as myself who's using an LGK20 compatible for pdanet with the need of a computer. I paid for your app and I loved using it. Got me out of many sticky situations. I just need some help from the person who developed the app. Some insight. Please and thank you.

Been a long time user of this app, but the last few years I have not used it. I got a Chromebook and could not tether. I installed Linux on it and with this app I still could not because there is no Linux support. However now that the \"WiFi Direct\" option is available, I can finally use this app again and tether while in ChromeOS!!!! So excited. I love using ChromeOS but don't trust connecting to anything but my own wifi. So glad I can use this again, and the setup was flawless.

People you need to STOP updating your phones just because they come out with a new software update. You can't use FoxFi anymore? Well stop updating your phones problem solved. Then some of you expect the devs to keep up the demand knowing full well how hard it is to bypass the security issue put on them. You wanna use foxfi? Get an older model phone \u0026 put your sim card in it... Again problem solved. Stop whining about this app when they (ACTUALLY TELL YOU) it won't work if you use a (NEWER PHONE) or (UPDATE) an older phones software. Then you guys wanna give it a bad review because of that... Some of you obviously can't read the description. I've been using this app for YEARS! I got a new \"Note 8\" BUT i use my OLD \"Note 3\" to use this app for online. Some of you are just lazy to do the work which is easy as putting a \"Sim Card\" in a \"older phone\"... A child can do that! Good work devs! You guys ain't gotta please these people no more ain't nothing wrong with your guy's app. I've been riding with yall since day one keep it up!

Used to be good. Wi-Fi Direct doesn't seem to allow for a 2.4 GHz client to connect to a 5 GHz host. At least it's not working for me. And the limited documentation seems to not consider this issue.

Prof. Emilie Rolfson IV

Works like a charm!! Have had this app over five years and it always works, some carriers and phones don't support it but every phone I've had it has worked flawlessly for when I don't have internet at home, great app worth the buy.
