How to turn off public wi-fi notifications in android

Call it OCD if you will, but I make it a priority to have a clean Notification panel. Like a chalkboard that isn’t wiped spotless, I get an unsettling feeling that something in the universe isn’t complete when there’s unnecessary clutter in the drop-down. For this reason, I loathe the fact that I can’t remove the “Wi-Fi connected” tile from my “Notifications.”

Luckily, there are two simple ways to remove this irritating, unnecessary notification. One is a quick non-permanent settings change that works across all Android devices, and the other a more fixed solution to annoying persistent notifications on Samsung Galaxy devices.

Option #1: Force Stop It (Any Galaxy)

This first method applies pretty much across the board on Android. While I’ll be showing it out on the Galaxy S4, the “Force stop” option is there for any Android.

Pull down from your Status bar to access the Notification panel, tap and hold on the “Wi-Fi connected” notification, then select “App info” when it pops up. Once in the App info screen, select “Force stop.”

Confirm and go check your Notification tray; you’ll see that the obnoxious notification will now be gone.

Force stopping will not disable your Wi-Fi, but unfortunately, the notification will come back upon rebooting or when toggling your Wi-Fi off and on. But no worries, check the next section to see how to take full control of your notifications.

Option #2: Take Control of Your Notifications (Any Android)

With a rooted Galaxy device and the Xposed Framework installed, you’ll be able to prevent notifications, including the persistent Wi-Fi one, from annoying you ever again.

Essentially, NotifyClean grants you the power to pick and choose which notifications you will receive, so definitely check it out.

There you have it, two simple solutions to an annoying “feature” on your Galaxy device. Did these help? Let us know in the comments below or on our Facebook and Twitter feeds.

    Being able to turn off the Wi-Fi calling notification is very important and you’ve come to the right place for help, cdem66. From the screenshot, it looks like you have a Samsung device. You can’t turn off the notification, but you can stop it from showing. You would need to swipe the notification to the right so that it shows the settings gear on the left hand side and tap on the gear. You can then turn the notification off and it should not re-appear unless you reset app preferences.

    You receive emergency alerts on your phone from time to time, depending on how tolerable you are. The dreadful sound of the emergency tone, the buzzing of the vibration motor, and then the bad news. Someone has gone missing. Or a severe weather warning has been issued for your area. Your phone has suddenly and unexpectedly scared the heck out of you. It’s terrible enough during the day, but it’s just terrifying at night.

    The U.S. carriers cooperated with the federal government to come up with a means to send you warnings about severe weather, missing individuals, and other national emergencies. Because they think it will save your life or the life of someone else, they want you to view this information. In this post, we will discuss the types of these emergency alerts and how do I see past emergency alerts on Android?

    What are Wireless Emergency Alerts and Amber Alerts?

    Technology is advancing at a rapid pace. Individuals who have emergency alerts on their smartphones can share public information with a large number of people in times of threat or tragedy. Using your mobile phones, this wireless emergency alert lets the community know what is going on. Usually, authorities will send out an AMBER alert when they are monitoring a lost individual. There is an indication that this person might be in your region. When it comes to kid abductions and coming calamities, this is a wonderful tool that might save lives.

    Many lives have been lost. As a result, these notifications do not obey Do Not Disturb settings by their nature. They MUST be able to make it through to the other side.

    Types of Emergency Alerts

    Emergency notifications are available in three (or four, based on how you number) various formats on your Android device. Under the less-dangerous “Cell Broadcast” category, you’ll find these:

    Extreme Threats: An imminent catastrophic weather calamity such as a hurricane, tornado, or tsunami is classified as a threat to your life and property.

    Severe Threats: These scenarios, while less dangerous than extreme dangers, are nevertheless reasons to be cautious, but not to evacuate or take drastic precautions.

    AMBER Alerts: These are alerts that are specifically designed to help locate a missing kid or children. “America’s Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response” (AMBER) is a technical acronym. Amber Hagerman, a 9-year-old kidnapped and murdered in 1996, was the inspiration for the name. In addition to providing you with the location of the warning, AMBER alerts frequently provide a vehicle description including a license plate number.

    Presidential alerts: These warnings, which are usually classified as “severe threats,” are sent directly by the President of the United States (or their office) and cannot be shut off in your phone’s settings.

    How do I see past emergency alerts on Android?

    You may have disabled Google’s emergency notifications in the past, but have now changed your mind about doing so. It should be no issue to enable emergency notifications, such as Google weather alerts, in this situation. Follow the easy steps below to learn how to activate this feature and see past emergency alerts on Android:

    Turn on Wireless Emergency Alerts:

    • First of all, open the device’s Settings menu.
    • Then click on Security.
    • Toggle the alerts you wish to receive by scrolling down and tapping on Emergency Alert Settings.

    Disabling All Alerts:

    • Go to the SETTINGS section of your smartphone.
    • Find the “More” option by scrolling down.
    • You’ll have to click on “Emergency Broadcasts” to use this feature. It is generally found near the bottom.
    • Choose “Enable Notifications” from the drop-down list. You may then deactivate this option to turn off all emergency notifications altogether.

    See past Emergency Alerts history:

    • Open the Messages program on your smartphone.
    • Tap More, Settings, and Advanced in the upper right corner.
    • Tap Wireless emergency alert after that.
    • Another way to see your emergency alert history is to use the following method.
    • Go to [Settings] on your smartphone. Then tap Security. After that click [History of emergency alerts]

    How can I disable emergency alerts on my Android phone?

    While you cannot opt-out of receiving presidential alerts, you may unsubscribe from other types of alerts. We do, however, suggest leaving them on, as the info they provide might be extremely helpful to you (or to someone else) in an emergency. A number of choices are available if you like to educate yourself with the settings or modify their features in any way.

    Depending on whatever phone you have (yeah, Android!) the configurations will be in a different location. However, the options will all be referred to as “Cell Broadcasts” or “Emergency Alerts”. The easiest place to start searching for them is in your settings. If your phone has a search option, simply put in “broadcasts” or “emergency” and the settings should appear right away. Check your audio, alert, or display settings if you’re not using a search feature.

    The default Messages app on Samsung devices has emergency alert options. To customize the choices, go to the Messaging app’s navigation, settings, and then “Emergency alert settings”. Toggle the alerts separately on your phone, select how they notify you and whether or not they vibrate when you get them, depending on your phone model. The emergency alert feature on some newer phones will even allow you to switch it on or off from the settings menu.

    What does it sound like when there’s an emergency or an AMBER alert?

    It’s noisy and unpleasant, especially if you have a smartphone with excellent speakers.

    However, if you’re among a group of individuals who are all on their phones, it will definitely attract your attention!

    When an alert is issued, your phone will most likely vibrate, however, certain phones allow you to turn off vibration.

    How to turn off public wi-fi notifications in android

    To bring things up to code with a new FCC standard, Android recently added an “Emergency broadcasts” feature that will make your smartphone notify you whenever a potential safety threat or Amber Alert is posted in your area. Even if you have your phone set to silent, these emergency alerts will cause your device to emit a loud, piercing sound when a potential threat is nearby.

    But many people already have their own solution for getting notified of emergency situations. On top of that, the vast majority of these notifications are for events that aren’t exactly life-threatening such as severe thunderstorm warnings and other weather events. So whatever your reason, if you’d like to get rid of these notifications, I’ll show you how to disable them below.

    • Don’t Miss: Remove the ‘Emergency’ Call Button on the Lock Screen

    Disabling All Emergency Alerts

    Note: If you have a Samsung phone, you can’t disable all alerts at once. Skip ahead to the next section to see how to disable individual types of emergency alerts.

    For most Android models, if you don’t want your phone to beep loudly for any emergency situation, all you have to do is disable one option. Head to Android’s main Settings menu and select the “Apps & notifications,” then tap “Advanced” and choose “Emergency alerts.” From there, disable the toggle next to “Allow alerts” to turn off all types of emergency broadcast messages. Note that this doesn’t include presidential alerts, which can’t be disabled on any device without root.

    Disabling Individual Types of Emergency Alerts

    If you’d like to be notified of certain emergency situations, but would rather not have your phone go off in situations that aren’t life-threatening, there are two different ways to accomplish this depending on the type of phone you have.

    For most Android models, head to Settings –> Apps & notifications –> Advanced –> Emergency alerts. From there, you can simply disable the toggle next to any type of alert you no longer wish to receive.

    Disabling the “AMBER alerts” option will stop notifications when a child is missing or an elderly person wanders off. Of the next three options, “Severe threats” and “Public safety messages” are the less important ones, so disable those and leave “Extreme threats” ticked if you only want to be notified of the most pressing situations. Finally, disable “Required monthly test” and “State and local tests” to stop receiving alerts that only serve to test the emergency broadcast system.

    If you’re using a Samsung Galaxy device on One UI, these settings are a little harder to find. To start, open the “Messages” app. Since there are a lot of apps that go by the name “Messages,” I’ll include a screenshot below highlighting the app you should look for in your app drawer.

    How to turn off public wi-fi notifications in android

    From the main screen of Samsung’s Messages app, tap the menu button in the top-right corner and select “Settings.” Next, head to “Emergency alert settings,” then you’ll see options for changing how you’re notified of these alerts. But since you want to disable these alerts, tap “Emergency alerts” at the top of the screen, then disable the toggle switches next to any type of alert you no longer wish to receive.

    As mentioned earlier, if you only want to be notified of the most pressing emergencies, you can disable “AMBER alerts” and “Severe alerts,” then leave “Extreme alerts” enabled to be notified of things like earthquakes, tsunamis, and other life-threatening events.

    How to turn off public wi-fi notifications in android

    When a child goes missing in your area, there’s a very good chance that you’ll receive an Amber alert on your smartphone. These alerts are useful as they spread important information among the community and increase the chances of finding the missing person. Nevertheless, they can be a bit disruptive at times, especially if you get one at three in the morning. So while we advise you to keep these alerts turned on at all times, we’ll show you how you can turn off Amber alerts if you prefer.

    The process is straightforward, but only if you know where to look. However, you can find the setting in a different place depending on your device and carrier, which can cause some confusion. In this post, we’ll take a closer look at how to do it on stock Android devices, as well as on phones made by Samsung, OnePlus, and LG. Let’s dive in.

    How to turn off Amber alerts on stock Android

    How to turn off public wi-fi notifications in android

    It’s very easy to manage your alerts using the Pixel 5 and other stock Android devices. Here’s a step-by-step guide.

    1. Open the Settings menu.
    2. Tap the Apps & notifications option.
    3. Select the Advanced option.
    4. Tap on Emergency alerts.
    5. Find the Amber alerts option and turn it off.

    How to turn off Amber alerts on Samsung phones

    If you own a Samsung Galaxy smartphone like the latest Galaxy S21 or Note 20, the process is different from the one described above. You can use either one of these methods instead:

    Turn off Amber alerts in Samsung devices:

    1. Open the Messages app.
    2. Tap the three-dot icon next to the search button.
    3. Tap the Settings options.
    4. Select Emergency alert settings.
    5. Tap the Emergency alerts option.
    6. Find the Amber alerts option and turn it off.

    Second method:

    1. Navigate to Settings > Connections > More connection settings.
    2. Tap the Wireless emergency alerts option.
    3. Tap on Settings.
    4. Select the Alert types option.
    5. Turn those alerts off.

    How to turn off Amber alerts on OnePlus phones

    To get rid of these alerts on OnePlus devices like the OnePlus 9 Pro, follow these steps.

    Turn off amber alerts on OnePlus devices:

    1. Open the Messages app.
    2. Tap the three-dot menu icon.
    3. Tap the Settings option.
    4. Select Wireless alerts.
    5. Tap the three-dot menu icon.
    6. Tap the Settings options.
    7. Find the Amber alerts option and turn it off.

    How to turn off Amber alerts on LG phones

    Finally, we’ll show you two methods that work with LG phones like the V60 ThinQ.

    Turn off amber alerts on LG devices:

    1. Navigate to Settings > Network & internet > Wireless Emergency Alerts.
    2. Tap the three-dot menu icon in the top-right corner.
    3. Tap the Settings options.
    4. Find the Amber alerts option and turn it off.

    Second method:

    1. Open the Messages app on your phone.
    2. Tap the three-dot menu icon in the top-right corner.
    3. Tap the Settings options.
    4. Select the Emergency alerts option.
    5. Find the Amber alerts option and turn it off.

    Unfortunately, there are so many different OEMs that we can’t highlight every manufacturer’s process. The good news is that even if you don’t own a Samsung, LG, OnePlus, or a stock Android device, there’s still a good chance you’ll find this setting in one of the places mentioned above. If not, you can at least get a better idea of where to look.

    How to turn off public wi-fi notifications in android

    Wi-Fi calling is a great way to improve your call quality or make up for a lack of service, but one thing I’ve noticed is that our smartphones feel the constant need to tell us about that functionality being turned on. That really annoys me, especially on Samsung devices where the notification is visible all of the time. So, if you’re like me and want to hide that notification, here’s how to do so.

    How to hide the Wi-Fi calling notification on Samsung devices

    1. Long press the Wi-Fi calling notification
    2. Access notification details
    3. Adjust the notification importance

    For me, the annoyance of this notification isn’t just that it shows up. Rather, it’s that it constantly shows up in the midst of important notifications and shows an icon in the status bar at all times. That’s just irritating no matter how you slice it.

    1. Long press the Wi-Fi calling notification

    To hide this notification, we’re not going to totally disable it since that could affect functionality. Rather, we’re going to minimize it and take that notification out of the status bar. To do this, we’re first going to need to access the notification itself. Long-press on the notification to see other options, and from there tap details.

    How to turn off public wi-fi notifications in android

    2. Access notification details

    Once you’ve accessed the notification details, you should see three main options for “App icon badges,” followed by the different categories for this notification. Both of these should be labeled Wi-Fi Calling, but to hide the notification we’re going to go into the first option.

    How to turn off public wi-fi notifications in android

    3. Adjust the notification importance

    Android treats all notifications based on levels of importance, and by default, the Wi-Fi calling notification is set to medium or high, meaning it’s shown just like any other notification. You can tap this setting to adjust that to Low. Once changed, the notification immediately loses its icon in the status bar, and also shows as a minimized notification which is always pushed to the bottom of your notification list.

    Is there an API to turn On/Off the WiFi HotSpot on Android programmatically?

    What methods should I call to turn it On/Off?

    UPDATE:There’s this option to have the HotSpot enabled, and just turn On/Off the WiFi, but this is not a good solution for me.

    13 Answers 13

    Warning This method will not work beyond 5.0, it was a quite dated entry.

    Use the class below to change/check the Wifi hotspot setting:

    You need to add the permissions below to your AndroidMainfest:

    Use this standalone ApManager class from anywhere as follows:

    Hope this will help someone

    Here’s the complete solution if you want to implement the wifi hotspot feature programmatically in your android app.

    SOLUTION FOR API < 26:

    For devices < API 26. There is no public API by Android for this purpose. So, in order to work with those APIs you've to access private APIs through reflection. It is not recommended but if you’ve no other options left, then here’s a trick.

    First of all, you need to have this permission in your manifest,

    Here’s how you can ask it on run-time:

    You can then access the setWifiEnabled method through reflection. This returns true if the action you asked for is being process correctly i.e. enabling/disabling hotspot.

    You can also get the wificonfiguration of your hotspot through reflection. I’ve answered that method for this question on StackOverflow.

    P.S: If you don’t want to turn on hotspot programmatically, you can start this intent and open the wifi settings screen for user to turn it on manually.

    SOLUTION FOR API >= 26:

    Finally, android released an official API for versions >= Oreo. You can just use the public exposed API by android i.e. startLocalOnlyHotspot

    It turns on a local hotspot without internet access. Which thus can be used to host a server or transfer files.

    It requires Manifest.permission.CHANGE_WIFI_STATE and ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION permissions.

    Here’s a simple example of how you can turn on hotspot using this API.

    The method to turn on hotspot:

    Here’s how you can get details of the locally created hotspot

    If it throws, a security exception even after giving the required permissions then you should try enabling your location using GPS. Here’s the solution.

    Recently, I’ve developed a demo app called Spotserve. That turns on wifi hotspot for all devices with API>=15 and hosts a demo server on that hotspot. You can check that for more details. Hope this helps!

    If you’re using a VPN-based ad blocker with full HTTPS functionality on a Samsung phone, you’ll get a notification informing you there’s a third-party security certificate in use. No big deal, except it shows up every time you restart the phone. Samsung isn’t alone in this type of annoyance, either.

    When your phone posts a notification upon every reboot, dismissing it becomes a chore after about the tenth time you have to do it. But you’re in luck, because there’s an app that can automatically dismiss any notification containing certain text. It happens almost instantly, so it’s like the notification was never even there.

    • Don’t Miss: Keep Your Phone Unlocked When It’s Paired with Your Smartwatch

    Step 1: Install Notification Remover

    First, let me be clear that this only works with notifications that you can normally swipe away. If you’re having trouble with a persistent, non-removable notification, use this method instead.

    But the app that makes it easy to auto-dismiss pesky system notifications is called Notification Remover, and it’s available for free on the Google Play Store. So search for it by name in your Play Store app to download it, or head directly to the app’s installation page at the link below:

    • Play Store Link: Notification Remover (free)

    How to turn off public wi-fi notifications in android

    Step 2: Grant Permissions

    On first-run, the app will ask for permission to access your notifications. Tap “OK” on the prompt, then you’ll be taken to a system settings menu. Here, scroll down and locate Notification Remover in the list, then enable the toggle switch next to it and press “Allow” on the popup.

    Now, swipe or tap your back button twice to return to the app, then tap “Settings” on the snackbar message at the bottom of the screen. If you don’t see the gray snackbar banner at the bottom, you’ll have to close and reopen the app.

    But after tapping “Settings,” you’ll be taken to another system settings menu. Here, tap the drop-down menu towards the top of the screen, which reads either “Not optimized” or “Apps not optimized” by default. Here, select “All” rather than “Not optimized,” then scroll through the list to find Notification Remover. When you do, disable the toggle switch next to it.

    How to turn off public wi-fi notifications in android How to turn off public wi-fi notifications in android How to turn off public wi-fi notifications in android

    Step 3: Create a Filter

    Now, open Notification Remover and tap the large + button in the bottom-right corner. You’ll see a popup with three fields: Package name, Message text, and Delay.

    If you want to stop all notifications from an app — Android System or System UI, for example — you’ll just need to type its package name into the topmost field and press “Save.” That can be found with an app like Package Name Viewer 2.0.

    If you just want to stop a particular notification, simply type what the alert says into the Message text field. Hit “Save” when you’re done, then you can repeat this process of tapping the + button and creating a filter for any other annoying notifications you might have.

    The third field, Delay (in seconds) will delay the dismissal of the notification, if filled out. This would be handy for a notification you still want to hear a beep for as it arrives, but don’t want to see in your notification shade.

    Step 4: Say Goodbye to Annoying System Notifications

    Now, you’ll never see that pesky notification again unless you’re really trying. It’s automatically dismissed as soon as it’s posted, so your notification shade should be nice and tidy after your next reboot.

    For instance, as you can see in the screenshots below, my Certificate authority installed nemesis appeared after a restart at 4:11. After entering the text into Notification Remover and restarting again, you can see it was gone for good by 4:12!
