Free WiFi Hotspot 3 creates password-protected Wi-Fi hotspots that share your laptop or PC's Internet connection. Just set the SSID and password and click Start to turn your wireless card into a virtual Wi-Fi router. You can share any available connection with your phone, tablet, and other Wi-Fi gadgets or a roomful of laptops, depending on your host computer's capabilities.

Pros

Basic layout: Free WiFi Hotspot 3's user interface isn't much bigger or more attractive than the average pop-up yet manages to include Hotspot Name and Password fields, Start and Stop buttons, Network Connections, and more.

Password protection: Passwords are required, but not optional -- greatly enhancing security.

Multiple networks: If your laptop or PC has more than one network connection, you can choose which one to share from a drop-down menu.

Info and Help: Clicking Info displays the hosted network's settings, while the Help button accesses online tutorials (including videos) describing how to create, share, and protect Wi-Fi hotspots.

Cons

Special offers: Updating the application triggered a seemingly endless succession of "special offers" and other downloads that we could accept or decline with varying degrees of difficulty. Optional downloads in freeware are commonplace, but Free Wi-Fi Hotspot 3 had more than we'd ever seen.

Bottom Line

Free WiFi Hotspot 3 does a good job of sharing available connections. It's not a true router when it comes to range, power, and security, but it's a great way to share your network connection among phones, tablets, and other devices.

"Warning!!!"

October 29, 2014  |  By pogi.games

 |  Version: Free WiFi Hotspot 3.2.8

Pros

confirmed that Comodo is still working. forced me to revisit my old friend Spybot-SD and WOT turned red.

Cons

installed
framed display and suptab(blocked by comodo),
sweet page (changes my browser's home and search page to sweet-page.com. also added some useless tray icon that runs on startup),
a backup/sync program
and some program protection manager i have no interest in knowing what it does because im looking for a hotspot program, not these adware and malwares.
and it does not support 3g mobile dongle.

Summary

i wonder where all these 5 star reviews came from. install this if you wanna see popups from your AV.

"Dangerous viruses in with this download"

May 17, 2014  |  By Sunshine1017b

 |  Version: Free WiFi Hotspot 3.2.0

Pros

Nothing that I can see.

Cons

Within 30 seconds of installing this software my antivirus went crazy. It blocked 8 viruses within one minute and then I got a pop-up that said that my anti-virus program had been disabled! It's been a B*&#! to try to get it back on again.
Within 4 mins The screen froze and then was full of new pop-up tabs and I was informed that AVG PC Tuneup had been installed on my computer.
Something is seriously wrong here! Don't download this PC poison!
How could anyone say that this is great software??

Summary

I guess that cnet has been hacked. BleedingHeart and WOT both said that it was a safe site. So much for that security!
