Samsung Galaxy S7 Wi-Fi is disabled in standby - Solved

If you notice that the Wi-Fi is automatically disabled on your Samsung Galaxy S7 in stand-by, for example, because you do not receive WhatsApp messages, then the reason is usually only a small setting.

This is "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep". When this setting is set to "Never" or "While Charging", then your connection to the wireless network is automatically disabled in stand-by. We tell you here how to change the setting or where you can find them in the operating system Android.

Samsung Galaxy S7

For this please open the app menu, then Settings --> Wi-Fi

Tap now in the top right on "More" and further "on "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep". You now have the following options to choose from:

  • Always (Increases battery consumption)
  • While Charging
  • Never (increases data usage)

Set here the setting to "Always", as only then the Samsung Galaxy S7 holds a permanent connection to your Wi-Fi network upright. Subsequently, the Samsung Galaxy S7 should also be able to receive WhatsApp messages and e-mails again when the unit is in standby.
