What's the difference between mobile hotspot and Wi-Fi?

Wi-Fi allows devices to connect to the Internet or to each other through a Wi-Fi network. A mobile hotspot is a device (such as your phone) that creates a Wi-Fi network that other devices can connect to. In other words, a mobile hotspot grants you and up to 10 other devices (phones, tablets, laptops, etc.) access to the Internet even when there's no Wi-Fi.
