How do I share data with my eSIM or activate hotspot?

Many Holafly eSIMs let you share data with other devices via a Wi-Fi connection.

We suggest you read the Technical Specs of the eSIM you are thinking of buying to check if the plan includes the option to share data.

Hotspot / Tethering Holafly eSIM

To share data from an iPhone

  • Go to Settings > Mobile Data > Personal Hotspot and allow others to connect.
  • You can also set up a password for this network from here.

When travelling, always remember to set up your eSIM correctly first. In other words, first use your mobile data to confirm that you are only using your eSIM data plan. Your iPhone will use the network you have set up for mobile data by default when sharing data.

To share data from an Android

  • Go to Settings > Network & Internet
  • Tap Wi-Fi Hotspot / Connection Sharing and activate your hotspot.

You can also set up a password for this network from here, as well as change the name of your hotspot if you feel like it.

If you can’t find these settings, you can always use the search bar at the top to find the right place.

And you’re done!
