I have internet and Data with Spectrum. It is connecting automatically to a "Spectrum mobile wifi" without my permission and it is affecting my work in a huge way. Messing with my meetings and connectivity . I have not been able to block it. It is accessing my cell phone(apple 13 pro) without my consent. This cannot happen.

    Good evening @giosallig and Welcome to our Community Forums,

    Thank you for reaching out to us about your mobile phone automatically connecting to Mobile Hot spots. I am very sorry this is interfering with your work. There are a couple of ways to stop this from happening. You can forget the network. or you can select Never under the Auto-Join Hotspot option. These are both located by selecting WiFi under the settings screen. Please let us know if these options do not help out. - Lyn

    I did "forget" and I have "auto-join hotspot" in "never" option. And it still connects. Even when I am in a meeting in a car it starts connecting when I am close to a mall or something and because of distance it is low and disconects me from calls. It is affecting me all the time.

    Thanks. Can you also try restarting the device after removing and reinstalling the SIM card? Let us know if the issue continues.

    Still not working, this is crazy. I talked to the chat :support" and said nothing to do. So Spectrum will access my cell with no permission and sabotage my work?
