    Hello,

    My iPhone 6 keeps automatically joining open wifi...
    this is superbly annoying as in the city rarely any wifi is actually open.....joining one essentially disables your data capabilities as internet access is only then granted after the splashscreen.
    what happens is then just walking down the street im getting lots of splashscreens popping up here and there. what the heck?
    any ideas?

    thanks

    Turn on "Ask to join Networks" under Wifi settings

    Do these networks go by the same name? If so, then that's why your phone keeps joining them.

    You can fix that by doing this: 1) Connect to one of those networks. 2) Go to Settings->Wi-Fi. 3) Tap the i button that's next to the name of the network to which you are connected. 4) Tap "Forget this Network." Tap the top button in the dialog box that pops up.

    This will stop it, then do the forget as suggested.
