    If you use hotspot anyone/thing using your device's signal is now using your data allocation.

    If you enable hotspot, verizon will charge you for it. However, a recent court ruling says that they cannot do anything to you if you go out and find another way to use your hotspot. Foxfi isan app available in the play store that works really well for me. When you enable hotspot, just like Lloyd says, any data used will be deducted from your allowance. Not an issue if you have unlimited but something to think about if you don't.

    Nobody can access it if there is an access code set up. Besides that the range is pretty small, but having the code set is key.

    I think Lloyd meant anybody that accesses your network, with permission (or without for that matter), uses up data rates with could be pretty fast if you only have 2Gb/month.
