    Hello everyone,

    I recently upgraded to a Note 7, so all kinds of stuff pop up asking me whether I would like to "Allow" or "Deny" them from accessing my pictures, media, and files.

    My phone was trying to connect to a Wi-Fi network and a box popped up saying: Captive Portal Login - allow access to pictures, media, files, etc. and two buttons with the words Access or Deny. I accidentally pressed ALLOW.

    Now, I am afraid that whatever Captive Portal Login is, has access to my photos, media, and files....

    What can I do to disable this feature on my phone? Can I reverse the access somehow? HELP!!!

    THANK YOU!

    The quickest way is to go to settings, then to Apps, swipe across to All, scroll down to CaptivePortalLogin, click on it , clear cache, then click on force stop, affirm then click on 'clear data' with luck you might of killed it off

    "Might HAVE" or "might've". God dammit that irks me.

    Back to issue. Captive portal is not required for wifi access. You can go into your wifi networks, choose the connection, click forget, then reconnect. This time choose deny.

    Captive Portal Login is a system app that handles the login screen that some networks require before connecting. You don't need to worry about it.
