When you’re out of the house, Android notifies you if you’re near an open Wi-Fi network. That’s handy when you want to log into the internet at a coffee shop. It’s infuriating when you pass every single hotspot along the freeway. If you’re sick of those notifications, here’s how to turn them off.
This feature is baked into Android, but it may look a little different depending on your phone’s manufacturer. First, open the Settings app on your phone and tap “Wireless.”
Tap the gear icon at the top of the screen.
Disable the “Network notification” toggle.
From now on, you won’t get a notification when you find a public Wi-Fi network. Of course, that means you’ll need to check for Wi-Fi networks yourself if you’re out and about, but at least you won’t get pestered every time you get within shouting distance of some store’s network.
