Disable attwifi auto connect


Disable attwifi auto connect

I wanted to disable attwifi auto connecting but there is no option to do it. I consider it unsafe that phone will connect to open WiFi just because it is same name as att WiFi.

Then I tried to add attwifi to my network list and because it already exist it asked me if I want to delete, so I said yes and now it seems I do not auto connect to attwifi network. I would like some one else to check if this truly works.

I have this problem too.  ATT Smart Wifi is incompatible with my device, HTC Vivid.  Where do I go from here.

This did not work for me.  Delete is not an option on the Add, or anywhere else. I also feel this is an extreme security risk to my identity and my finanical well-being.  ATT has implemented this "feature" for my convenience, a little sarcasim, but in reality the motivation is self interest.
