How to share Wi-Fi from Mac?

Issue: Hi, I started wondering whether it is possible to make a Wi-Fi hotspot on mac similarly like on iPhone? It would be handy during holiday times! Thanks

Solved Answer

Apple[1] allows its users to share internet connection not only on iPhone or iPad but also Mac. This might help people during holidays when they are traveling in between hotels. Usually, guest houses are likely to charge more for extra devices or faster Internet speed. Thus, some Apple users might want to share the Internet connection with their other devices.

While most people already know how to make a hotspot[2] on iPhone, they are not aware how to turn on Internet sharing on Mac to iPhone. However, it is a useful tip to learn since it might help you during times when you are running out of data on your smartphone.

Creating Wi-Fi hotspot on Mac is more than simple and does not require much time. Also, you will be able to set the password of your choice and change it every time you start sharing the Internet connection. It is useful when you are about to allow someone to connect to your Internet but want to protect your password.

Don’t pay ransomware authors – use alternative data recovery options

Malware attacks, particularly ransomware, are by far the biggest danger to your pictures, videos, work, or school files. Since cybercriminals use a robust encryption algorithm to lock data, it can no longer be used until a ransom in bitcoin is paid. Instead of paying hackers, you should first try to use alternative recovery methods that could help you to retrieve at least some portion of the lost data. Otherwise, you could also lose your money, along with the files. One of the best tools that could restore at least some of the encrypted files –  Data Recovery Pro.
