BT wifi app draining battery

Hello,

 

Since downloading the BT wifi app my battery seems to be draining really quickly is there a way or a setting to prevent this, apart form uninstalling the app?

 

Regards

 

Adrian

Re: BT wifi app draining battery

 

It's just an app from BT which helps locate and login to hotspots, is there a way from stopping apps from runing all the time in the back ground ?

Re: BT wifi app draining battery

Who is BT? Link? It's hard to know what you're speaking of with just initials.

 

I don't even know what the application is... some developers build in a function to disable the app or exit the application. This one might not (I don't know what app it is). Can you click on the app icon and see what settings or options it has, or a Close or Exit command?

Re: BT wifi app draining battery

OK, thanks. I am not familiar with that app. What does it do?

 

There could be another app which does the same thing and not cause a battery drain.

Re: BT wifi app draining battery

It has my login details for my BT internet account and looks for BT wifi which is free for me. I think it may be a glorified link so should probably delete it.

Re: BT wifi app draining battery

I'd say do that, if the battery use time increases, good.

If not, we can explore other apps or causes.
