    As title says - I used to be able to configure the hotspot network name, security type, password, allowed/disallowed devices, etc. but now all I can do is switch it on or off, and select between fully public or allowed devices only, under a default network name. See attached screenshots - these are the only options I can find in my phone's settings. Am I looking in the wrong place or have the customisation settings been removed?

    Apologies if this has been asked or addressed elsewhere - I've tried searching Google + using the forum search but didn't find anything.

    If this is how it must be from now on, it's yet another reason I wish I'd never updated.

    I have this on my GT-I9506
    I didn't notice because it walked my settings over from kitkat and I had no need to change them.
    Then I did a factory reset and it lost the settings and there seems to be no way to put them in now.
    I too am regretting lollipop

    Hi, you can press the Recent Key after you switch on the Wifi Hotspot and connected to device. The recent key will allow you to configure the wifi hotspot set up and change the password. Recent key is the one at the handphone left side bottom and Back key is the one at handphone right side bottom

    Thank you for mentioning the recent key (options key). I often try that but didn't in this case for some reason.
