    Does enabling SSH waste more battery than if it is disabled?

    Like if I am at school (where there is no WiFi), and SSH is enabled, does it even waste any battery?

    Does it only consume battery if I am connected via WiFi, or what?

    Thanks

    No, it only drains the battery when you're actually using it, so leaving it on won't waste the battery unless you start transferring stuff. That's what I heard at least.

    If your connecting to wifi it consumes battery. You should get sbsettings so you can easily turn wifi and ssh off anytime you aren't using them.

    The Wifi consumes the battery, not the SSH.

    SSH dosent consume battery on its own no so you can leave it on.

    But if you connect to any unknown or unsecured networks e.g. Internet cafe, work or public networks i recommend turning it off for security reasons.
