    I have just updated my iPhone and iPad to iOS 8.0.2 and have noticed that my iPad is showing my phone to connect to for personal hotspot even though the option is switched off on my phone. When I click to join on the iPad, it turns personal hotspot on on my iPhone. So surely anyone can now just turn the option on on my phone? I know they cannot connect without the password, but a stranger could just turn it on?

    I'm not allowed to use personal hotspot on my contract so I don't want this to be an issue. Any advice? As you can see below, my iPad is showing my phone as available even though it's turned off on my phone?

    Only devices signed into your iCloud account can switch it on.

    Fair enough, I didn't know that. That solves it then, thanks :)
