Hotspot and bluetooth tethering doesn't work anymore.

My LG G6 hotspot and bluetooth tethering doesn't work. I keep getting a 'authentication error' message. Verizon has really fallen off; they have become the most hostile and user unfriendly in the span of a few years. Has anyone else had this problem? Do you know a solution?
