Disable Wi-Fi Direct

I wish to turn off Wi-Fi Direct 

Unable to turn off Wi-Fi Direct bec as use it is coupled with Wi-Fi.

 

Wi-Fi Direct automatically turns on when turning on Wi-Fi making my device visible to anyone.

Re: Disable Wi-Fi Direct

Pulled this from some Android documentation "Wi-Fi Direct is enabled the moment you have a stable internet connection. This doesn't mean that Wi-Fi Direct is on all the time. Your smartphone only starts scanning for nearby devices to connect to when you tap on the Wi-Fi Direct tab."

Re: Disable Wi-Fi Direct

Thank you Longhiker, totally appreciate your feedback.

 

Wi-Fi is not safe as it is and now we have to cope with an even worse risk with Wi-Fi Direct  enabling itself.

 

I want to disable it.  It is not safe to have it enable itself at will.  

 

All this contradictory confusing explanations are simply not acceptable.
