Premium features

WiFi Manager has several premium features, available for purchase for $1.95 as a single package right in the application using Google Wallet.

Important: Google will store your order under your account. This means you only pay once even if you later install new firmware / reset your phone / get a new one. The application will restore your existing order and activate again, as many times as necessary.

1 – Two new widget themes, inspired by Android 5.0 (Material Design), with transparency support.


These can be previewed for free by installing my Bluetooth Widget.

2 – The WiFi Network Switcher widget to connect to a network with a single tap.

The widget will enable WiFi if necessary and then connect.


3 – Per-network icons (from a predefined set) and descriptions.

These are automatically backed up (to your Google account) and will be available on a new phone or after a reinstall.

You can also back up your assigned icons and descriptions “manually” with Menu -> Backup on the app’s main screen.

4 – Exclude networks from the live scan list.

This can be useful if your neighbors have routers too.

5 – No ads.

Since version 4.1, the free version contains ads. The premium version does not.

How to buy

All the above features are available for purchase right in the application, as a single “Premium” package.

Order processing is handled by Google Wallet. My app never sees your payment data.

    I stumbled upon this app because I wanted to exclude a specific access point from being connected in normal optimizing. I need this only for connection to my car (Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV). Kostya included this feature within hours. Thank you for this and this very helpful app in general.

      I wanted to do the same, but was having problems setting up the regex so the phone doesn’t automatically connect to a SSID that starts with a specific string of characters.

      How do I do that?

        I suppose that the new feature is not yet deployed on google play. The new menu item under best network / change to best network is “Network names to ignore”. This did not exist before. I just entered the plain SSID of my car without any additional syntax. Don’t confuse this item with “exclude by regular expressions” obove “Best Network”.

        The setting is for the app’s “best network switcher” feature – where connections are initiated by the app.

        Your case sounds different – there is no way as far as I know to prevent *Android* (not the app) from considering any “known” (saved) network when looking for a network to connect to (when the phone isn’t connected to WiFi).

    Where is the meaning of the icons showing in the State column defined? Some are obvious, like the padlock, but “heart” and “star”… who knows.

      Star is “open” network – no password. Heart is “known” network – one you connected to before and its password was saved by Android.

      On the second phone please bring up the app’s “purchase” screen, for example from the menu.

      On the purchase screen, do not press “buy”, just wait 10-30 seconds – the app will query Google for your existing order and should activate.

    Great app, I am going to use for my own personal privacy, thanks.

    Hello, i installed the app on all my Devices. Samsung Phones and tablets and on my oneplus 1 and oneplus 3.
    It worked very well on all Devices exclude oneplus 3.
    When i close all running Apps, wifi Manager runs continuesly exept on the oneplus 3.
    So i have to Start it manually again.
    Whats wrong? It starts with Boot and in sdmaid Status is shown like in other devices

      Sorry I don’t have any OnePlus phones. There is certainly nothing different in the app for these either. Perhaps it would make more sense to try a OnePlus user forum? Also OnePlus may have some sort of “battery optimizer” built into the phone’s software (just an idea).
