Re: switch off your Wi-Fi...

I normally keep my mobile data turned off. I run an app called Smart WIFI Toggle. It automatically disables my WIFI, and only enables it at hotspots that I have specifically indicated (such as at home or a coffee shop that I frequent). Not only does it protect me from errant hotspots and scanning of my phone when I am not specifically using it, it also cuts down on the battery drain. In addition. I use an app called Autosync. It keeps the Sync disabled unless my data or wifi is enabled, then Autosync will automatically turn on Sync and automatically disable it again when my data or WIFI is disabled..
