Default Possible Turn Off WiFi Auto-Connect For Remembered Networks?

Does anyone know if this is possible?

On my Windows computer I can set the computer to automatically connect to a network or not. I want to do the same thing on Android.

On Android I connect to a network, I type in the password and the network is saved. Now every time I am in range the phone autoconnects to that network. I just want the phone to not connect unless I tell it to.

I know I could just forget the network but then I would have to type in the password again. I know I could turn off WiFi but I like having it on because it improves my location.

Wandering whilst wondering through the settings for the wifi might be the place to look. Mine on occasion turns itself on, but not normally.

Having WiFi on but not connected to anything doesn't improve location. Its only able to do that if its connected to a network since its able to use the WiFi router's location ID.
