That's just great. I found the settings on my phone:

Settings > Location > (three-dot menu in the upper-right corner) > Scanning


- WiFi Scanning: Improve location for apps and services by scanning Wi-Fi networks even when Wi-Fi is off (this was set to "On").
- Bluetooth scanning: Improve location for system services by scanning for Bluetooth devices even when Bluetooth is off (this was set to "On").

So I switched those to "Off."

I kinda want to dump the smartphone and go with a flip phone...

CERN's world-first browser reborn: Now you can browse like it's 1990


Quote

The WorldWideWeb browser was built by Sir Tim Berners-Lee in 1990 on a NeXT machine, following his March 1989 proposal for a 'Mesh' or global hypertext system for CERN that he would later call the World Wide Web.

Quote


The WorldWideWeb browser simulator is now available online to view in a modern browser. For anyone curious to know how to use it, the developers have provided written instructions and a video demo.

No adverts, could be a winner. :breakfast:
