    I'm at a friend's house. I connected to wifi. A pop-up window appeared, asking if I wanted to disconnect because it was unsecured. I accidently hit yes after checking the "remember my choice" box and now cannot reconnect! I tried restarting, forgetting the network, etc. Nothing works. Any way to reverse this seemingly permanent mistake?

    Not sure what all you will loose but it may keep your passwords or it may not, but should take that preference out.

    You have to go through the security and privacy app. On the main page there should be a Wi-Fi security section. Within that, you have to go to "Manage Wi-Fi networks," select "blocked networks" and check the one you don't want to be blocked. You then hit remove. It should let you connect after that.

    Annalee, I cannot find what you are referring to. I am on an S7, I would love if someone could point me to this blocked networks page cause I cannot find it. I do not have a wifi security section that I can find so the rest of the steps dont work for me. I'm on an s7 on verizon if it matters.

    I found the answer. After putting my phone into safe mode I found that this issue went away. So I starting searching for all apps running actively after rebooting. I found a Verizon app called Security and Privacy. This app was doing it. You can unblock sites with it or you can do like I did and just disable the app. I'm good to go now.
