The current design for setting up a hotspot assumes that it must always have a key.
<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Networking#hotspot>

Tony Espy points out that this may be unnecessary and annoying where you, or people you trust, are the only people in range of the hotspot for usable periods of time. For example, when camping or on a road trip.

This could be fixed by making the key optional. For example, adding a "Require a key to connect" checkbox, where the "Key:" field is present only when the checkbox is checked.
