Fix Mobile Hotspot Not Working on Samsung
Turn On/Off Airplane/Flight Mode

Samsung Hotspot Connected, But No Internet?

In that case, all you can do is, turn off and on the mobile data several times, by this, the problem might get resolved.
Make Sure Battery Saver Mode is Disabled
While keeping the battery saver mode on, you cannot use the high battery consuming features like Mobile Hotspot. If Mobile Hotspot on your Samsung not working, then kindly check for the battery saver. Meanwhile, the Android system completely closes all the unnecessary background activity running.
Pull down the Notification center and find Power Saving Mode, make sure it is disabled.
Alternatively, you can search for Power Saving Mode in the Settings app, if it is not available in the notification center.

- Go to the Settings
- Search Data saver.
- Tap Data saver.
- Disable Data saver.
To use the Hotspot on your phone, the VPN should be disabled. We would advise you to disable the VPN on your phone.
