I would turn the WiFi off as I wanted it off and low and behold the other day it would turn back on without explanation by itself. This article will look at the WiFi keeps automatically turning on Android Fix.
The Issue in Detail:
So this is a problem I experienced on Android it can happen to a device that new or one you have owned for a while. This can happen on flagship Android devices such as the Samsung Galaxy line of phones or even the other generic Android phones.
So whatever Android phone you have this will apply. The issue usually happens that when you turn off the WiFi as you want to go offline you will realize that by the following day usually the WiFi is on again and you did not turn it on. This may even happens a few hours after turning it off as well.
