Windows – Create hotspot without password


Is it possible to create hotspot without the password?

I already tried to create it by netsh command and in settings, but I always must enter any password.

Best Answer

  • Open command prompt (in Admin mode)
  • netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=anything key=
  • netsh wlan start hostednetwork
  • Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center
  • Right Click Connection > Properties > Sharing > Allow other users to connect

This should get you where you need to go :)

With the key attribute in step 2 - leave it blank.

It goes without saying that there are considerable risks with leaving a blank password - anyone can connect and do anything on your connection - including try to break into your PC. That said, your question was very specific - so I'll skip the lecture on security and assume you've thought this through and definitely want to take this risk and accept the possible consequences.
