Hi all. I have a new Nothing Phone 2 running Android 13. I have been getting notifications (from the moment I started using the phone) of available public wifi networks. This is very annoying so immediately went about looking how to turn them off. I found the 'Notify for Public Networks' option in the wifi network preferences section of the settings and switched it off. Happy days I thought, until I went out to get some lunch and immediately got a notification of an open network. When I press and hold on the notification it says that the option cannot be changed but there was a cog so I tapped on that and it takes me to 'Network Status' in the Android system settings but the toggle is greyed out. I'm sure that's what keeps allowing these notifications through. I tried disabling the 'Network Alerts' and 'Network Available' options but they still show up.

Welcome to Android Central! Go to your saved wi-fi network list, and see if that open wi-fi network happens to be saved. If so, delete it from your saved list and see if it continues to notify you when you're in range.

Hi, thanks! You might be a genius. The networks that pop up the most (thinking about it) are the the free wifi on the bus and places I have used wifi before. I've removed them all from my saved list and will see how it goes now.
