I looked at my batter stats, and it shows my WiFi as always being on even if it is off. Is anyone else seeing this? If so, is it just a glitch? Does anti e know how to stop it?

'Feature' of android 4.4
Go into WiFi settings and turn off 'scanning always available' (or something like that)

Thank you for this! I also noticed this and had no idea! Maybe after turning this feature off will help save some more battery life as well? Guess phones these days aren't so simple anymore, you would think when you turn wifi off that it is OFF! No, only off to some degree, lol. Damn phones these days always cheatin on us usin backdoors to get their way, haha!
