Secure your Android Hotspot connection with Hexnode

expand collapsive

We all know that setting up a secure network connection is super important. But sometimes setting up a portable hotspot makes more sense, especially if you are moving around a lot. But how do you make sure that these connections are secure? And most importantly, how do you get your users to set a strong and secure password for the connection?

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! We will be releasing two new restrictions specifically to address this issue.

  • Wi-Fi Hotspot SSID – Remotely sets the preferred name for the hotspot.
  • Set Hotspot Password – Remotely configures the hotspot password.

With the addition of these two configurations, you can remotely set up your mobile hotspot with a strong password and relax, worry-free. However, please note that the feature is supported only on devices running on Android 8.0 and lower.

To get started, head over to Policy > Android > Restrictions > Basic and navigate to the Allow Network Settings section.

To know more about these configurations, check out our updated help doc on Android Restrictions. And if you have any questions or suggestions for us, feel free to hit us up anytime. You can email us at or ping us here at Hexnode Connect.
