Android WiFi throttling

Starting on Android 9, bandwidth throttling will limit all apps that measure WiFi signal by only allowing four signal scans every two minutes. For best results, scanning needs to happen more often.

This limit can be disabled in your mobile’s settings by first activating developer options. Do so by going to Settings > About phone > Software information > Build number. On some models this might be under Settings > About phone > Build number.

Once the developer options are activated, disable the throttling by going to: Settings > Developer options > “Wi-Fi scan throttling”. Another possible path for some models is Settings > System > Advanced > Developer options.
