To help mobile phones users easily exchange files and documents, many smartphone manufacturers design file transfer and share tool and provide them for free. SHAREit is the most famous one. This app can be found on almost any platform.
SHAREit allows you to easily share and transfer files across local Wi-Fi. It is 200 times faster than Bluetooth, the highest speed goes up to 20M/s. You can transfer files without losing quality.
The SHAREit application works on secure connection protocol and has transfer speeds faster than Bluetooth. The other method for file transferring is either through Bluetooth, NFC, or USB drives. Looking at the unsafe protocol offered by USB drives, and slow speed of Bluetooth, applications like SHAREit were developed, based on Wi-Fi Direct methods.
How To Fix Sony Phone Tethering Error Prompt?

- If you see dun typed in the APN Type field, your mobile phone is going to use APN Settings for tethering. You have to either remove this APN setting or clear this APN field.
