How Apple keeps your Instant Hotspot connection private and secure

“Continuity was designed to make your iPhone, iPad, and Mac work more easily, quickly, and seamlessly together,” Rene Ritchie reports for iMore.

“Instant Hotspot does just that by making personal tethering even more personal. It’s meant for just you, so it requires you to be logged into iCloud on all your devices, and be within Bluetooth Low Energy (BT LE) range,” Ritchie reports. “But once you are, sharing your iPhone or cellular iPad’s LTE connection is not only simpler and faster than ever, but more secure.”

Ritchie reports, “Instant hotspot is still a Wi-Fi tether, and your internet activity will be transacted using the same level of security, and with the same expectation of privacy as any other wireless internet connection. Since you’re not sharing it with everyone else on the coffee shop network, though, the risks of snooping or sniffing your activity are much lower.”
