Since installing this app on my Galaxy S6 Edge (running Lollipop 5.1.1) two days ago, the phone battery drains quite rapidly.
I unchecked the Auto-Connect box, but the app continues to search for hotspots and sends notifications. Is this because I saved my TWC ID and password?
I also am unable to edit Tags in the settings screen. Why is that?
Instead of uninstalling the app or turning off my phone's WiFi, is there a way to turn it off?

On most Android phones, there is a way to stop backround usage of any applications. I would enure that is selected to reduce the battery usage. That will make sure that when the application is exited, that it is closed and not continuing to run when not in use.

TWC-Ray - That doesn't really help the usability of the app if I stop background usage.
As for my other two issues, do you have an answer for those?

Have you exited out of the app completely to see if that changes anything? If not, I would recommend temporarily uninstalling the app to see if that has any affect.
Please let us know if there is anything else that we can do for you.

I just got off the phone with TWC Tech Support. There is no way to disable the WiFi Finder. The only option is to uninstall it. You can do a Force Stop, but it will restart after the next reboot.
WiFi Finder was clobbering battery life on my Galaxy S6 also.

A screenshot of battery usage would help identify the problem.
Also, why not Marshmallow? It's better on battery.
TWC WiFi Finder is still a battery hog, though. You could disable the app in Settings | Apps | WiFi Finder | Disable (or use Titanium Backup to freeze it if you're rooted) and re-enable it when you know you need it...making it pretty much too much of a pain to use, I know.
