To connect to the Internet, you can try to:
* Use an Ethernet cable instead of Wi-Fi if possible. Wired interfaces work
much more reliably than Wi-Fi in Tails.
* Share the Wi-Fi or mobile data connection of your phone using a
USB cable. Sharing a connection this way is called *USB tethering*.
[[!img usb-tethering.png link="no" alt=""]]
See instructions for:
* [Android](https://support.google.com/android/answer/9059108?hl=en)
* [iPhones or iPads](https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204023)<br/>
Only sharing mobile data works on iPhones and iPads; sharing Wi-Fi does not work.
For mobile data sharing to work, you need to [[disable MAC address
spoofing|first_steps/welcome_screen/mac_spoofing#disable]] in the
Welcome Screen.

<p>Tails cannot hide the information that identifies your phone on the network.
If you connect your phone to:</p>
<ul>
<li><p>A Wi-Fi network, then the network will know the MAC
address of your phone. This has security implications that are discussed in
our [[documentation on MAC address spoofing|first_steps/welcome_screen/mac_spoofing]].
Some phones have a feature to hide the real MAC address of the phone.</p></li>

the network will be able to know the identifier of your SIM card (IMSI)
and also the serial number of your phone (IMEI).</p></li>
