    I am a Beginner and was curious ,why do I have a captive portal app?
    I have no control over this application and I cannot delete it. I have an S8 Plus upgraded to Oreo 8. O.
    Any help is appreciated thank you

    Welcome.

    That is a System app that allows you to access and agree to the terms of use of public wifi networks, as a condition of using them. Typically, when connecting, you're taken to a website page - the captive portal - where you have to actively agree to the terms before the connection is made.
    At least, such is my understanding of it.

    Welcome to the forums. As Belodion explained this is a system app, included in every device that runs Android. Nothing to worry about. This is mine, for example. Captive Portal app-img_20180428_100458.jpg
