Introducing the Connectify Hotspot 2018 Beta

Scott AckermanBlog

Connectify Hotspot 2018 Beta is now available!

It is the only working hotspot software for fully updated Windows 10 computers.

While Connectify Hotspot 2018 isn’t quite done, we wanted to rush this beta version to you because of the problems introduced in both the Fall Creators Update (FCU) and Creators Update (CU) to Windows 10. In those updates, Microsoft unwittingly broke some of the underlying processes that both Connectify Hotspot and ironically enough their own Mobile Hotspot rely on. With FCU or CU installed, the computer running the hotspot was seeing very high CPU, and client devices don’t get internet. Oops.


Anyone running Windows 10 who runs Connectify in Lite (free) mode or who has a Lifetime License should download and install this beta version immediately. Users with 2016 or 2017 only licenses should hold off until 2018 hits production and our official upgrade path is complete.

Release Notes

  • Support for Windows 10 Fall Creators Update
  • Improved device and vendor detection
