When I connect my android phone to wifi, using a desktop PC connected to the same wifi I can see a list of folder that belongs to my android phone called android on localhost (as shown in the screenshot)

Is there a way how to disable this folder? And why this folder appears from the first place?

The folder appears on my local area network

Android marshmellow 6.0.1 Windows 10 Pro

  • Unless you have installed special non-standard software installed, "Android on localhost" seems to be the MTP folder. While the device is connected via USB there should a notification that allows you to configure the connection mode. Change it to "USB charging only". – Robert Apr 20 at 17:43
