Everyone has probably experienced the struggle of needing a WiFi signal but not having a WiFi router around to get it. If you happen to be one of the unlucky ones then OSToto Hotspot can solve your problem. OSToto Hotspot can easily turn any of your non-mobile devices into a WiFi hotspot. Whether you’re using a desktop or laptop, you’ll be able to use WiFi with ease with the OSToto Hotspot.

All About Efficiency

OSToto Hotspot was formerly known as 160WiFi but other than the name change, OSToto Hotspot continues 160WiFi’s legacy without much difference. Installing the program doesn’t take a long time. In fact, it installed as soon as the file is clicked. Once launched, you’ll see the white and purple interface that’s been there since the 160WiFi days. OSToto Hotspot’s interface is minimalistic. The program takes up a really small part of your screen so it doesn’t get in the way of your other work. Aside from a pop-up setting menu at the right-hand corner of the screen, most of the necessary options that you’ll likely need are already displayed. 

It should be mentioned that the program needs a wireless adapter in order to work. However, once a wireless adapter has been installed, using the software is pretty much smooth sailing. You’ll be able to see all of the devices connected to the hotspot. You can also choose to blacklist any unwanted devices. These devices will be listed in the “Blacklist” section of the program. 

Security and Customization

OSToto Hotspot’s security options are rather limited, however. Of course, it’s possible to secure your connection with a password, but that’s about it. Its customization options are also quite rudimentary. Users can choose to change the program's actions during start-up, sending and receiving of notifications, and update the driver version. Other than those listed above, OSToto offers no other menus for customization. Despite these drawbacks, OSToto is still a great utility tool for people who need to turn their devices into portable WiFi hotspots.

One nitpicky drawback is the automatic minimization of the window to the tray. There is no option to disable this feature. However, this is a rather minor issue and would just take a little bit of getting used to on the part of the users.

Simple, but Effective

There’s no denying that the OSToto is a simple program. It has a simple interface and simple menus. It’s undoubtedly a good fit for users who aren’t technologically savvy. All it needs is a wireless adapter and users are pretty much ready to go. Still, that very simplicity can also be its drawback as it also lacks a lot of features. Don’t expect a lot of high-level functions. As long as a portable WiFi is all you need then OSToto Hotspot can definitely fulfill your needs.
