    How does one stop the Mobile Hotspot to disable itself once one's phone is no longer connected to it after some time?

    Hello iDamn, :)

    A mobile hotspot will act like any other wireless access point. It will show devices (ex: your phone) as either connected to it or not.

    The only true way to disable it is to manually turn off the mobile hotspot. Otherwise, it'll be in standby waiting for your phone to connect again.

    Oh yes could be because of university's internet connection would usually timeout randomly and asking for verifcation again. That's why the hotspot could possibly triggered to turn off after not detecting any internet access.

    Thanks, Brink!

    Hello mmdd, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    The easiest way would be to use the quick action button in the action center from Option Three to toggle it on and off as needed.
