Editors' Review

+

It's easy to create Wi-Fi hotspots with mHotspot on your WiFi-capable Windows 7 or 8 laptop or PC. This free app turns your Windows machine into a virtual Wi-Fi router that can connect up to ten devices. You can share almost any kind of Internet connection, including LAN, Ethernet, and 3G/4G, with full security. You can also use mHotspot as a repeater to extend your Wi-Fi signal.

Pros

Easy to use: We named our hotspot, set a password and security key, selected an Internet source, and pressed "Start Hotspot." We picked up our phone, scanned for our new hotspot, and logged in; all in a matter of seconds.

Secure connections: mHotspot handles WPA2 PSK, WPS, and WEP password security.

Control: Advanced options include auto network switching, always-on Wi-Fi and scanning, shared content, excluded and allowed devices, and certificates. The mHotspot console displays number of devices connected, data sent and received, and other log data.

Cons

Battery drain: Using your laptop as a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot could drain your battery quickly, so plug it in if you can.

Stay safe: Despite strong password security, you should still take all precautions with sharing, LAN access, and other possible security compromises when using mHotspot. Your security is your responsibility.

Bottom Line

We were delighted by how easily mHotspot turned our little old netbook into an impromptu Wi-Fi hotspot, and we can think of plenty of uses, such as study groups, project meetings, club outings, and family gatherings, to name just a few.

"MalwareBtyes Anti-Malware "Pro" Detected Open Candy!!"

April 19, 2015  |  By ProSoftwareTester

 |  Version: mHotspot 7.7.2

Pros

No Pros. Didn't finished the install because Open Candy was discovered as PUP before install finished.

Cons

Open Candy PUP/Malware/Spyware/Adware was discovered hidden deep within the bowels of this small little dangerous installer!

Summary

Open Candy is an installer attachment (a.k.a "wrapper") that application developers use to monetize their application when they can care less about what happens to their end-users machines. The sweet "candy" reward part is their attractive application. You "open" the "wrapper" of the "candy" only to find out it's poisoned with malware, spyware, adware...you name it! Be careful to always have "ACTIVE" malware protection on your machine. Without it, by the time you run a "manual" scan, the malware might well have already done it's damage.
