Hello.

There is no reason why a simple update/log page is not produced, listing the changes made in the latest firmware.

Mine didn't.

When it updated it turned BT wi-fi status to active.

BT removed the simple option to turn it off via the webpage interface, and so far I've no way of turning it off 🙁

Re: New Firmware on HomeHub6 March 2020

Its an old link and doesn't give the option to opt out.

Once I get to the Your Products screen the only item mentioning BT Wi-Fi has a Learn More button, which then is asking me to sign up to it.

I posted a screenshot of that screen in this thread: https://community.bt.com/t5/Broadband-Extras-Apps-from-BT/How-do-I-turn-the-BT-wifi-hotspot-off/m-p/... Asking if it meant I had to press Setup Now button. But nobody replied.

There used to be the option mentioned in your link on the main panel. I did it a few years ago. But its not there now.

How do I attract a Mod to look to see if I have to press the setup button, or is there another option somewhere else?

@lifeonmars  Good question because it seems that recent updates  to SmartHubs 6 and Smarthub 2  the BT Wifi is being activated without owner’s knowledge. ThIs never used to happen unless a Factory Reset was performed.

@lifeonmars  I have Smarthub 2 and it started BTWiFi after the same update. The MyBT showed Not Active so I opted in and the following day opted out. After around 7 days the hub opted out.
