Re: How to stop whatsapp from keep connecting to WiFi or GPS

 

WhatsApp requires a constant internet connection by design. If you do not want this you should exit the app.

 

Basically this would be the same as wondering why your phone is constantly connected to the cellular network. WhatsApp at it's core is more or less the internet equivalent of the cellular SMS service so it makes perfect sense it needs a permanent connection.
