Unless you have an unlimited plan, you’ll need to connect to a WiFi network sooner or later. By doing so, you can save some mobile data, and hopefully, you’ll have enough to get to the end of your billing cycle. You have three options when it comes to connecting to any WiFi network.
You can use Quick Settings, Connection Settings, or by using a QR scanner. The more options you have, the better. That way, you can choose the best path at any given time.

To connect to a WiFi network through Quick Settings, swipe down from the top of your display and enable the WiFi Settings. When it’s on, tap on the word WiFi. Here you’ll see a list of available networks. Tap on the network you want to connect to.
Once you’ve selected a network, you’ll need to enter a password. To ensure that you can see the password you’re entering, make sure the eye icon is not crossed out.
That way, you’ll see every character you enter and not dots. Below the password option, you’ll see additional options. For example, you have the Auto-reconnect option and some advanced options. You can make adjustments to options such as:
- IP settings
- Metered network
- MAC address type
