Ubuntu – How to change Wi-Fi Hotspot settings in Ubuntu with GNOME 3


How do I manage my hotspot connected devices or change the hotspot password? I can only see the Network Name, Security type and the Password but I can't seem to manage users or the network properties.

A GUI network connection manager should appear which will provide more options to manage your hotspot.
