This feature allows for your other devices to pick up your mobile hotspot settings on your Nokia Lumia 520. This is more preferable when you’re in public trying to locate a WiFi connection.

1. On your Start screen, swipe left, and tap  Settings.

2. Then select Internet sharing.

3. Switch the Sharing to On.

4. If you want to change the name of your connection, tap Setup > Broadcast name, then enter the name.

5. If you want to secure your Wi-Fi hotspot, then you can also type in a password for the connection.

6. Then select the connection on the other device.

Wait for few seconds and your phone will start broadcasting its WiFi network name. Now you’re ready to connect your other device to your portable mobile wifi hotspot.

You are allowed up to 8 guests with the wifi. I tried to do it myself and it said 'Sharing your mobile connection over Wifi with up to 8 guests).
