    Welcome. Have you always had this problem or is it a recent sudden change? If the latter, have you tried fixing with a soft reset?

    There's a feature that some carriers turn on that checks for wifi networks that you've already established a connection with. If you're nearby it turns on automatically. I guess it's intended to help you keep your data down.

    I think it's in settings under networking. I had to hunt for it to uncheck it and make it stop.

    Sprint has this option. It's called Wifi Optimization. But if that doesn't apply here's what you do:

    Go into settings / tap wifi / tap the three dots on the top right / tap advanced. There you can uncheck "wifi notification" and it will stop.

    on my phone the app is att smart wifi and it turns wifi off and on depending if i can get a connection or not, works pretty good, sometimes I pick up the phone and the wifi will instantly connect once the phone is turned back on.
