Are you trying to unblock a hotspot connection on your device? If so, you’ve come to the right place! In this blog post, we’ll walk through exactly what you need to do in order to unblock a hotspot connection.

First, let’s start off by going into your phone or device settings. From there, open up Connected Devices and select the desired connected device. Tap “Block” and then confirm that you want to block the connection.

Once the connection is blocked, you can then move on to unblocking it. Head back into Connected Devices and open the Blocked Wi-Fi Device(s) panel. Then click the Unblock Access checkbox next to the desired device. Click Apply when finished and then click OK.

Now that your Hotspot is unblocked, it’s important to take a few extra steps in order to make sure that everything is secure and working correctly. First, go into Settings > Cellular and make sure that the Hotspot is disabled. Then head over to Settings > Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions and enter your passcode if prompted. Scroll down until you find Cellular Data Changes and switch it over to Don’t Allow.

Finally, all that’s left for you to do is turn on your Hotspot! Swipe down from the top of the screen and tap Hotspot (if not already present, tap Edit at the bottom left corner of your screen and drag Hotspot into your Quick Settings). On the other device, you wish to connect with, open up its list of Wi-Fi options, pick your phone’s hotspot name, and enter its password before clicking Connect.

And that’s it! You can now enjoy an unblocked Hotspot connection on both devices without sacrificing any security measures along the way.
