    To Turn On or Off Paid Wi-Fi Services in Settings

    Note   Note
    Starting with Windows 10 build 15014, Microsoft has combined some of the advanced Wi-Fi settings. Wi-Fi Sense and Paid Wi-Fi Services have been merged into a single section entitled simply “Wi-Fi services”.

    In build 15014, you would click/tap on Wi-Fi on the left side, and turn on or off Find paid plans for suggested open hotspots near me on the right side instead.


    1. Open Settings, and click/tap on the Network & Internet icon.

    2. Click/tap on Wi-Fi on the left side, and turn on or off Paid Wi-Fi services for what you want on the right side. (see screenshot below)
