Yes, you can use your Android or iOS device as a hotspot, i.e. share your device's network connection with your other devices when F-Secure FREEDOME is turned on. This is also known as tethering.

You can set up the hotspot on your device in the same way as you would set it up without Freedome.

Warning: The shared network connection cannot be secured with FREEDOME on your phone or tablet; the network traffic from the other devices will bypass the FREEDOME VPN connection. Therefore we strongly recommend that you use FREEDOME also on the other devices to ensure that also their network connection is secured.
