On your iPhone, go to Settings | Personal Hotspot 

 

and you can turn it off from there. 

 

Otherwise, you'll have to delete your iPhone USB network connection from your list of devices on your computer.

Re: how do i turn off iphone hotspot

If you are referring to the additional *public* WiFi hotspot broadcast;

 

The xfinitywifi public hotspot can be disabled from your online account page.

To turn off the public hotspot, go to https://customer.xfinity.com/WifiHotspot/

 

I've seen it mentioned elsewhere that even if that page shows it disabled, sometimes you need to enable it, wait a bit then disable it again to get the public wifi to shut off..
