Does your current plan support WiFi hotspot? Not all plans do. If your plan supports WiFi hotspot then turn it on in Settings > Network & Internet > Hotspot & Tethering > then follow the on screen prompts to connect your other devices. Hotspot data is normally a separate part of your plan, 15GB a month, 25GB a month, etc. Whatever you pay for in your monthly plan. You can see that in your Verizon account online or in the My Verizon app.
Imacarbuff I certainly understand the need for a hotspot. Most plans come with Mobile Hotspot allowance but it does depend on your plan. What is the name of the plan you currently have? You can view other options here:https://www.verizonwireless.com/plans/
