    Default IOS 9.3.1 HotSpot Password Fail

    So recently I updated to iOS 9.3.1 and I am not sure if I have found a serious bug or not, so I am hoping someone here might be able to replicate.

    I often let my daughter hotspot to my phone every now and then, and when I do, I change the password so she can't get back on, but my macbook can when I want to. However, since updating to 9.3.1, it does not matter if I change the password, she can still get access!!

    Now I don't know if anyone can get on without a password, or it just remembered the last devices that were connected and let's them connect regardless!

    Whatever it is, it's a shocker, as now it looks like anyone that once connected to my Hotspot can without the need for the new password!

    Can someone please try and replicate this?

    Cheers

    UPDATE!!!! It looks like the HotSpot password does not work FULL STOP!!

    I just deleted the network from my Macbook and when I reconnected, I was not prompted for a password - even though I changed the password on the phone, and deleted it from the Macbook!!! About to try and brand new device.

    UPDATE!!! Ok - Other iOS devices get prompted for the new password, but not the macbook. Very strange!

    G'day Mongrel,

    Heads-up - This site is dead. Was mediocre to start, amazing for a while, then purchased by idiots who have done everything except for turn off the lights...

    For Apple/Mac/etc advice, particular if you're Aussie, I suggest:
