A few days ago, I started getting a popup message on my Huawei Honor 9 Lite which read

By turning on Wi-Fi scanning, apps and services can scan for Wi-Fi networks at any time, even When Wi-Fi is off.

It happens after EMUI update.

I proceeded to turn the Wi-Fi scanning off, but the message won't stop appearing every 5-10 minutes. Restarted my phone and it still kept happening.

I tried everything I could think of:

  • Disabled Wi-Fi Scanning in Location Services/Scan Settings
  • Disabled location
  • Made location use only GPS

but it doesn't help.

How to stop it from appearing constantly?

Try to turn off Wi-Fi+ as a temporary solution. See this post for more information.
