Nothing will make you run over your data limit faster than somebody using your unsecured hotspot. To enable your Straight Talk Hotspot device' security option, just follow these instructions:
Your hotspot will restart. Once it does, it will have the security option enabled. You will have to use the password every time you connect a device to it in the future.
