The response to our tutorial on how to password protect and disable the wifi Internet access on an iPod Touch or iPad (or iPhone, for that matter) has been amazing. So many people want to be able to completely disable Internet access on these smart devices so that they can let their children use them without worry that they will get into something online that they shouldn’t. So here is our tutorial on how to disable wifi (with password protection) on an Android phone or tablet.
On an Android phone, because it has an open operating system, it’s much easier to password protect and otherwise disable the wifi Internet access.
For an Android phone or other device, all you have to do is go to the Android market, and download the app called “Smart App Protector”.
Smart App Protector is a program that does the same thing as Locktopus does in our how to password protect and disable wifi on an iPod Touch article: it makes it so that you can password protect any application. In this case, the ‘application’ is “settings”.
It’s very simple to set up, and at only $1.50 for being able to disable wifi on your Android device, it’s a heck of a bargain!
