Overall Satisfaction with Connectify Hotspot

The Connectify Hotspot software, just like other virtual router software, allows us to turn any of our computers into a mobile/wifi hot spot. This not only helps with connectivity issues caused by faulty physical routers but also can be used as a wifi extender so that the more remote areas of the office are covered.
  • Bypass internet access restrictions.
  • Ease of use.
  • Network usage monitoring.
  • Connection stability can be hit or miss sometimes.
  • The UI is a bit outdated.
  • Ads all over.
  • Network monitoring.
  • Ad blocker.
  • User management.
  • The software does not provide any advantage over the free alternatives.
  • The repeater mode was nice when it would work properly.
  • Creating hot spots helped when additional coverage was needed.
Compared to Baidu WiFi Hotspot, Connectify Hotspot shares a similar set of features. Except for a few here and there, nothing is remarkable about Connectify's offerings. The fact that there are some free alternatives like Baidu's which can perform better in some cases can make it hard to recommend this app.

The Connectify Hotspot software is well suited for scenarios where you need to monitor wifi usage, convert your personal computer into a wifi hot spot or control the internet traffic going through the hot spot. Some other alternatives have similar set of features, but for free. This can make it a bit difficult to recommend it.
