Share internet via USB on Samsung Galaxy A10

Instead of sharing the connection by creating a Wi-Fi connection, you can also use your Samsung Galaxy A10's connection to connect a laptop or other device to the Internet via a USB cable.

Connecting via USB has its advantages, such as the fact that you won't need to create a password or enter it, which saves time.

It is also a more secure method, as you prevent someone from guessing the password to the Wi-Fi network and using your connection without your consent.

Connecting via USB also provides higher speed and avoids possible connection losses. In places with many Wi-Fi networks, they can interfere with each other by using the same frequency.

Finally, this method saves battery power, as the USB connection not only consumes less power, but also allows you to charge your Galaxy A10 while using it as a modem.

1- First step:

The first thing you will need is a USB cable that allows data connection, use the cable that comes with your Samsung Galaxy A10 from the factory, if you do not have it available try another cable but keep in mind that there are cables that only serve to charge the battery and do not transmit data.

Connect the cable to the Galaxy A10 and to the computer, laptop or device to which you want to share the connection.
