Galaxy Note 8: How to Edit APN Settings and Enable Native Hotspot

There is no mystery that many of the Telecom companies like AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and so on decided to restrict their users from using the WiFi tethering feature. These companies basically restrict you from sharing your mobile data with other Android devices even though you pay for the plan, but who says that you have to accept that?

Some say that it become surprisingly easy to unlock Wi-Fi tethering for free on Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T, or Verizon Wireless, and today I will show you how to edit APN Settings and Enable Native Hotspot on your own Note 8 device. This can be done with the help of a special app called Shortcut Master Lite. The app wasn’t actually developed for enabling native hotspot features, but is actually the free version of Shortcut Master, an app that is meant to reveal secret codes on your Android device.

You know that the carriers only disable the ability to launch APN settings or enable hotspot from the Settings app, therefore this app can do the job for you and let you enable native hotspot on your Galaxy Note 8 at your convenience. Have I convinced you to try it out?
