7. Look for the SSID field on the screen. The default SSID for my device was "Airtel-E5573-F725"

8. Change the SSID to any name you like. In my case, I am using the name "Techulator-4G".

9. You may leave the security mode as "WPA2-PSK", unless you are an advanced user and you know what you need.

10. Change the password to your preferred password that you can easily remember and also share with your family members/friends.

11. You may leave the option "Enable broadcast" so that others around you (family members) can see the hotspot name in their computer and connect to it. If you disable this option, nobody can see this hotspot connection in their mobile/computer but they will have to type it manually to connect to it.

12. Press the "Apply" button.

That's all. Now check the available Wi-Fi connections in your mobile or computer. You will see a Wi-Fi connection with the name you just selected.

Being an Indian ISP, you might find a lot of websites blocked on Airtel hotspot. To bypass this blocking, you can consider using a good VPN which guarantees the safety of your data and makes you untraceable through IP. We have used PureVPN and find it quite useful. If you are wondering -"Is Purevpn Safe?", then my answer is a resounding YES!
