    Is there any way to make wifi toggle turn off automatically a few moments after you leave your home wifi coverage area (or any other previously approved and connected wifi network)?

    I use this, after someone on these forums recommended it:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.softxperience.android.quickprofiles

    Works perfectly for me because I set up a quick access widget using Widgetsoid, so I just toggle the proper settings for car, home, work, or public. You can create your own profiles as needed. It's very simple to use and gets the job done.

    I can only speak for the Sprint version, as I know this is part of Sprint's plan to have people connected to the optimal connection, but there's a setting called "Connection Optimizer" that automatically turns wifi on, even if you've toggled it off. I've unchecked that to turn on, so that I have control of when the wifi antenna is turned on/off. I seen people from other providers mention something similar, but I don't know if they have the capability to turn that off.

    Question is, will he remember. I believe that is his concern, not the physical effort to turn it off.

    Just going to point out here that this thread is over two years old and the last time any of the participants has been in the forums was in 2016.
