Ubuntu – Hotspot is invisible


Installed Ubuntu 18.04 . When I turn on Hotspot ,it's open as normal.but when I search for this Hotspot in my mobile , I am not able to see it or connect it. I have tried various methods , created new Hotspot connection, but Hotspot is invisible when I look in my mobile. When I use a live usb and turn the Hotspot on , it shows in my mobile ,and I was able to connect but in the installed os no hotspot
