Edited by David Mason, VisiHow, Eng
Many of us struggle to turn off WiFi once it has been turned on. While having WiFi always on doesn't usually hurt anything, it can cause problems from time to time. This is especially true for people who fly on airplanes, take underground trains to work, or find themselves in places with no WiFi signals. If this sounds like you, then you'll want to learn how to turn off WiFi. That's because having WiFi turned on when there is no possibility of connecting will quickly drain the battery of your Galaxy S7 Edge. Turning off WiFi conserves battery power.
Disabling WiFi also stops your phone from broadcasting itself, which is something you may want for entirely different reasons, such as stopping those high-tech hackers you sometimes read about. In the tutorial below, we will discuss how to turn off, or disable, WiFi on your Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Remember: if you have questions, comments, or suggestions, we are here to answer them in the questions-and-answers section provided below this article.
