    Writing to inquire... Travel through a transportation hub where a number of retailers offer Wifi. Only one preference... How can one configure the Wifi settings so that the other services do not even appear as an option. Guidance sought.

    Connect to the wifi network you wish to use, then turn off the option to scan of open wifi connection in your network settings.

    Note: would want ONLY to alter something for the SSID broadcasts at this one geographic location and no where else.

    Then you'd need something more complicated. For example a tasker profile that acted like geofencing so that it would turn off scanning for open networks when within a specific distance of that location.
