HOW TO SHARE ANDROID DATA
USING WiFi HOTSPOT
To share Android data with computer, all you need is to switch on the WiFi hotspot on your android for it to connect to your PC but before that make sure you have set your WiFi password if you really want to block off unwanted users. After you’ve properly configured the wireless hotspot on your Android device, you can follow up by switching on your PCs wireless to connect with your Android’s hotspot, insert the password you’ve set to your computer, when connected just open your browser and you’re good to go!
Downside: WiFi hotspot has tendency to be hacked. The farther the range the weaker the signal strength.
Vantage: Its convenient, can be used from any location.
USING USB TETHERING
This is very much easier than WiFi hotspot but will require a cable, to share Android data with computer using this method all you have to do is to connect your phone to PC via a very good USB cable and then switch on the USB tethering usually found below the WiFi hotspot in phone settings. I will personally recommend this as it have shown to be faster and more secured due to the fact that you are connected to just your PC and no other person can hack in to your connection unlike the former which you have to insert a password before proceeding.

Downside: Connection breaks if cables isn’t connected properly or shakes while in use. Not convenient; you must carry the phone together with your PC.
Vantage: Its faster, trusted, secured and can’t be hacked.
USING BLUETOOTH TETHERING:
This method isn’t so common but its pretty much an alternative when your PC don’t have a wireless and in a situation where you don’t have a USB cable. This works like the WiFi hotspot but uses Bluetooth(BT) to connect. So if you have a Bluetooth in your computer, hurray! All you need to do is switch on and pair the Bluetooth on both devices or just click on Bluetooth tethering for it to start up (this will automatically switch on your Bluetooth). Just connect to your PC’s Bluetooth and enjoy surfing!
Downside: Range; the farther the weaker the signal strength or at worst it disconnects.
Vantage: Convenient, Secured.
