I have go unlimited and was told that I could connect my phones mobile hotspot to my laptop. When I try, it asks for a security key. Where do I find this?

When you enable your hotspot, it will show the hotspots name and a password that is already set (you can change it to whatever you want). When you activate the hotspot, on the device you want to connect to it, simply select it from the list, and enter the password that is shown in your hotspot setting, then connect.

This does not work. It keeps telling the network security key is incorrect. Please advise

This is not the experience we want for you, muin68. Let's ensure we find a resolution. Did you set up a password for your hotspot? Where did you locate the network security key that is not being accepted? Click here for the steps: https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/knowledge-base-216688/
