Turn On/Off Wi-Fi

To be able to connect the realme smartphone to an available Wi-Fi network, the general Wi-Fi function must first be activated.
This is done either in the Wi-Fi settings or via the quick settings of the status bar.

Note: If no Wi-Fi connection is used, we recommend turning off the feature to save battery, as the realme device will otherwise continue to search for available Wi-Fi networks.

Connect to a Wi-Fi Network

If we want to download bigger amounts of data, such as updates or apps, on the realme smartphone, it is advisable to connect to a Wi-Fi network beforehand in order to have unlimited data available if there are no restrictions or limits set part of the Wi-Fi network.

Connecting to a Wi-Fi network usually requires the corresponding Wi-Fi password, since most networks are secured via WPA/WPA2 PSK.

A password is rarely required for public Wi-Fi networks, such as in restaurants, cafés or train stations, but this also endangers the security of our own data, since we never know who else might be connected to the same network.
