    Hello. I am a new user who searched for this question but couldn't quite find someone with the same issue.

    I have my wifi turned on (Samsung Galaxy s6) and have never had a problem with my phone auto-connecting to my home network upon getting home before. However, in the past few days I've gone to use my phone after getting home and I've noticed it's connected to a network called "xfinity wifi" with a weak signal. I have to manually go in and connect to my home network to override this. It is obnoxious because, of course, I want my phone to simply connect to my home wifi rather than some strange, weaker signal, which I then have to manually change.

    Owing to some solutions from other threads I read, I want to clarify: I'm aware of "xfinity wifi" being a hotspot, and I have seen my phone connect to these sometimes when I'm on the train or bus. I don't really care what it is. I understand I can just turn off my wifi, or log in manually each time I get home, however this solution is not ideal for obvious reasons.

    Why is my phone choosing to connect to the "xfinity wifi hotspot" over my (preferred) home wifi? How can I fix this?

    Thank you for your time.

    Welcome to Android Central. If you click on the unwanted network in your settings, there should be the option to "forget this network".
