One of the little nuisances within Android is all of the random notifications that pop up constantly. One of which is when your phone lets you know that there are open Wi-Fi networks around that you can connect to. Thankfully, Android O allows you to disable these notifications…

How to disable the “open Wi-Fi network” notification

  1. Go to your device’s Settings menu
  2. Locate and select Network & Internet
  3. Tap into Wi-Fi
  4. Scroll down and enter into Wi-Fi preferences
  5. Toggle off Open network notification
