There are Wi-fi networks Available!

Do you ever go to a festival and do you always get the Wi-Fi networks available notification? Very frustrating because you think that it is a message.

How can this report be useful anyway? Well, if you are in a public location like a library that has a public wi-fi you know that you can connect and save your data bundle.


Let’s disable the “wifi networks available” notification.

There are two tutorials of which one tutorial contains only the steps for the techies among us, and if you cannot fix it with that, you can use the second tutorial that contains screenshots for the dummies among us.


The short steps for the techies.

  • Open the Settings application.
  • Find Quick Settings.
  • Click on Wi-Fi.
  • Find the 3 Dots button and open the tab.
  • Go to Advanced.
  • Find Network notification and undo the checkbox.

The longer steps for the dummies among us.

It is quite easy to disable the notification, but if you can not disable it with the short tutorial, I have the same steps below but with screenshots.

Open your settings application.
Swipe to Quick settings.
Select the Wi-Fi button.
