¹ SecureTether uses your phone plan's regular data volume (not the tethering volume) and works without a tethering plan in most cases (some providers detect and block tethering traffic based on traffic content in addition to locking down the phone). Regular data rates apply (which may be zero on an unlimited data plan unless roaming or other charges apply).

² Computers need to be configured, but only using tools that come with Windows / Mac OS / Linux (may require OS installation media or internet in some rare cases).
Android client devices require small (less than 0.5 MB) client app that can be sent to client device over Bluetooth using SecureTether (i.e. installation does not require internet) in most cases.

³ Blocked on some phones, in which case SPP can usually be used instead.

I can confirm that I have successfully connected Windows, Linux Debian, and Android (using the SecureTether client app) to connect to another phone with this app installed. Speeds vary, but the connection is functional and so far no adds either! I was able to tap into my cellular data plan that had restricted my USB tethering and hotspot. Great workaround!! I give the app 5 stars for excellent setup instructions and ad-free functionality 👍

This is awesome! I know, I'm probably just clueless, but I had no idea you could do this. I am sharing my internet connection via Bluetooth to my audio player and listening via Bluetooth headphones at the same time. I admit I had to turn down the bit rate a little to prevent pauses in the music. Still, this is awesome! And if BT won't cut it, I have the WiFi option. I am terminating the data line for my tablet, terminating the tethering fee on my phone, and sending Secure Tether a donation.

It works, and the instructions were easy to follow; the shortcuts to connect and disconnect are also very straightforward and work well. HOWEVER, (and judging by other reviews this may just be a 'me' problem) the speeds are incredibly slow (10-90kbps; my regular internet connection is pretty fast) and it's almost not worth it to use. The reason I'm using this is because the wifi drivers on my pc are messed up- I'll use it to try to fix things and then uninstall. It's a great resource though!
