¹ SecureTether uses your phone plan's regular data volume (not the tethering volume) and works without a tethering plan in most cases (some providers detect and block tethering traffic based on traffic content in addition to locking down the phone). Regular data rates apply (which may be zero on an unlimited data plan unless roaming or other charges apply).
² Computers need to be configured, but only using tools that come with Windows / Mac OS / Linux (may require OS installation media or internet in some rare cases).
Android client devices require small (less than 0.5 MB) client app that can be sent to client device over Bluetooth using SecureTether (i.e. installation does not require internet) in most cases.
³ Blocked on some phones, in which case SPP can usually be used instead.
