Mobile Hotspot does not allow connected devices to receive internet

Jump to solution

My Windows 10 laptop usually lets my connected devices, through the Mobile Hotspot, receive internet.

But McAfee blocks the internet now. I have to turn off the firewall to be able to connect to the internet.

I need a fix for this, what do I need to turn off in the McAfee firewall to be able to give out internet through the Mobile Hotspot.

I am not comfortable with turning it off just to give out internet data.
