Hot spot password?

I just had to get Newer Epics but, now my hot spot is asking for a password? Never did that before?

Re: Hot spot password?

You can change the name of your phone’s Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and secure its Wi-Fi network.

1 Press Home , press Menu , and touch Settings to open the Settings application.

2 Touch Wireless & networks > Tethering & portable hotspot.

3 Ensure Portable Wi-Fi hotspot is checked.

4 Touch Portable Wi-Fi hotspot settings.

5 Touch Configure Wi-Fi hotspot.The Configure Wi-Fi hotspot dialog opens. You can change the network SSID (name) that other computers see when scanning for Wi-Fi networks. You can also touch the Security menu to configure the network with Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) security, with a preshared key (PSK). If you touch the WPA2 PSK security option, a password field is added to the Configure Wi-Fi hotspot dialog. If you enter a password, you will need to enter that password when you connect to the phone’s hotspot with a computer or other device. Or touch Open in the Security menu to remove security from your Wi-Fi network.

6 Touch Save

Hope this helps
