Version 5.10 has major changes, MUST read below before updating.

3. New location permission required by Android due to WiFi scan API call. 
Please be aware that with no root access there are technical limitations of what an app can do. We try our best to offer the "most convenient solution possible" for sharing phone Internet but it may not be an "ideal" or "universal" solution (e.g. a normal WiFi Hotspot). It may not work for particular devices. 
=====WiFi Direct Hotspot (new!) ====
PdaNet+ now comes with a completely new "WiFi Direct Hotspot" feature that works on all Android phones 4.1 or later. It allows you to connect computers and tablets to your phone using WiFi BUT it will require you to either install our client app or setup proxy depending on what device you are connecting to the phone. You can activate "WiFi Direct Hotspot" in PdaNet+ then tap the "Help!" button for detail instructions. 
*If your Windows computer does not see the hotspot during pairing please do two things: 1. Restart Hotspot on the phone. 
2. Click on "Show All WiFi Direct Hotspot". It will verify if your adapter supports 5Ghz.
====FoxFi/WiFi Hotspot Mode (the old) ====
The original WiFi Hotspot feature remains in the separate FoxFi app if you still need it. It has ceased to function on many newer phone models due to carrier updates.  Even when it works, your hotspot usage may still be metered (see plan 2 below). WiFi Direct Hotspot could solve both issues. However the new feature is not meant to support game devices, TVs or TV streaming devices. 
=====USB Mode=====
USB mode works on all Android phones (except for some ZTE/Alcatel models). It allows connection from Windows or Mac. In addition, there is a "WiFi Share" feature that can further turn Windows into a WiFi Hotspot so that you share PdaNet Internet with other devices.
*If your phone is not recognized by your computer after connecting USB, please see http://pdanet.co/driver
=====Bluetooth Mode=====
Bluetooth mode is now obsolete and you should use WiFi Direct Hotspot instead.  Bluetooth mode may be disabled in future updates. 
=====Do I need this software?=====
The PdaNet software has been around since the first Treo smart phone in 2003. With over 30 million downloads in total, it must be something that everyone needs, right? Well...it really depends on the kind of data plan you have for your phone. There are 4 kinds of data plans from most carriers:
1. Your data plan (limited or unlimited) does not allow you to turn on the mobile hotspot feature on the phone (it prompts you to call your carrier). 
2. Your data plan is unlimited and you can turn on mobile hotspot from your phone to use it. But hotspot usage is "metered" against a cap (say 5G/month). After that the speed will be throttled to a crawl. (FoxFi can't avoid this!)
3. Your data plan is unlimited, and you can turn on mobile hotspot from your phone with unlimited LTE usage and no throttling cap. This plan does NOT exist or not intended. But we have seen loopholes on some phone models to allow it.
4. You data plan is limited and it allows you to turn on mobile hotspot from your phone. The mobile hotspot usage goes under the same data plan limit.
If your plan falls under 1 or 2, you will need to use PdaNet+. If your plan belongs to 3 or 4 then PdaNet+ will not make any difference. If you are unsure what plan you have, it won't harm to always use PdaNet+. 
=======================
Free edition of PdaNet+ will have timed usage limit, otherwise it is same as full version.
Sprint and AT&T may not allow you to install our app from Play Store, please install the apk file directly from http://pdanet.co/install or install from the computer side.

Reviews From google play store

I paid for this year's ago, back when the free version couldn't access secure websites and a lifetime license was around $15. It was well worth it and worked perfectly until recently. I upgraded phones many times over the years and it always automatically registered my license number and said I had a paid account. Since my last upgrade (note 9), I no longer have the serial and no one can locate my information. The app just doesn't work any more.


I had Pdanet+ on my old phone (LG K7) and loved it, but when I got my Samsung sky j7, it would not work at all. That has been fixed as of this update, and I am soooooo happy! Anyone who has a hotspot capable phone, but the hotspot feature is blocked or has a ridiculous limit on it should definitely try this app! Free your phone from the chains that your cellular provider has imposed upon it 😁


to fix RECENT KEY APP PROBLEMS. UNINSTALL KEY APP & PDANET+ THEN reinstall both. PDANET+ WILL recognize key app afterwards. so you'll then not be in limited mode. *ALSO DOWNLOAD NEW VERSION FOR MAC OR PC & DELETE OLDER VERSIONS UNDER YOUR DOWNLOADS.


love PdaNet+, the purchase was definitely worth it. however, i do experience some glitches, like it'll disconnect after 5 minutes. i noticed this happens depending on the charger im using, i ended up getting a bunch of different chargers until i found the one that it doesn't disconnect with.


the latest update that fix the foxfi key broke connection.. it is constantly dropping connection on my macbook pro 2017 now. WTH.. stop trying to fix things that was not broken.. NOW IT'S BROKEN!!! I UNINSTALL AND REINSTALL BOTH ON MY PHONE AND THE LAPTOP..


Had once or twice a new update caused it to stop working, but they keep it going. Worked on MetroPCS/T-MOBILE, and now it works on Sprint. Had to download the app off the Pda website to get it to work with Sprint.


I had a "Checking full version...(5)" error when I actually decided to buy it and it showed the error for 5 minutes straight. Sorry dev, but thats a refund Im not shelling out 8 dollars on the key app just to have the same 1 hour time limit as the free version because the app is not working properly. (EDIT) Now its fixed and i bought it again thank God


I too had the error in Pdanet+ that said it was searching for key (17) or something close. What I did to get my FoxFi Key to work again was to uninstall PDAnet+ from phone and then download the .apk from pdanet.co/install and install that. I DID NOT uninstall the FoxFi Key when I uninstalled the PDAnet+ that was downloaded from the play store. I now have full version again. FWIW: The play store app version is 5.21.7 and the direct download .apk is version 5.21.9. Hope this helps!


This app has always been one of my "go to's" and I love how you do not have to have a rooted phone to be able to use this. I use to root all the time, but not anymore. Due to Android apps now being on Chromebooks I can finally get mine online with the work around, which is amazing, and wireless!!!! So happy. Also the newest update 4-10-19 helped so much with CPU usage, it was cripling before. Keep up the good work, love the app and it is so useful.


Have paid for full version. Worked perfectly for years. Recently says I need to purchase. Not happy, but will keep checking for fix and will update review if resolved.


I've been using this app on and off for years, and I hate to give it such a low rating because it's the only thing I can find that works. However, it only works well some of the time, and it has lots of issues. And the PC companion app is complete junk. Furthermore, I received no response from support after sending them a detailed email both explaining some of the issues I've run into, so they could expand on their FAQ to help others, and with the issues still unresolved hoping for help.


Works great. Good speed but I live in very cell tower friendly area. Better than stealing neighbors Wi Fi. Up date!!!! 1/10/14 still love pda net. Speed is awesome with 4g. Have been using it, sometimes only occasionally, sometimes for 12 or more hours everyday for over four years now. 4/17/19 update. Still best app I've ever purchased. I may go months without needing to use it but when I need to it always works. Stay on top of updates tho. Faster than my cellphone hot spot by far.


Connects my tablet to my phone, even though my carrier tried to lock my phone down. No root required. Persistance is important, try different ways to connect. I can connect via wifi or bluetooth. This app has lots of ways to connect your mobiles. Awesome app!


blocks ports ..so my plex can't get through..otherwise would be top notch..but I have to continue to use easytether until this is resolved.


I get a message "wifi direct needs work on this phone model" It doesn't work for this phone, lg v20 running Oreo, stock rooted, UPDATE: Still it is not compatable with the V20, on the latest update.


The most useful app that I have in my library. Full stop. I can now tether a VPN internet connection from an Android device to a Windows PC via USB. Excellent.


One of the best app ever. it allows you to debug and tether at the same time. it saved me a lot of trouble. Kudos to the dev.


app works but stops working as soon as the screen goes to sleep or few minutes after switching to another app. the reviews for paid version are saying purchasing it is not working. please fix this great app


PLEASE FIX With the new update is turns off and the app goes dark and I have to turn it on again!. thx. EDIT, I think it's working now with the latest update.


The wifi direct Hotspot is working well with Android oreo. However system updates to Android pie. It no longer support on 2.4ghz Wi-Fi.
