This publication describes systems and techniques directed to wireless-connection drop prediction, warning, and protection. A wireless-communication device, such as a smartphone, includes a wireless-connection manager application. The wireless-communication device, having a wireless connection to an access point of a wireless network, performs operations under the direction of the wireless-connection manager application to predict, warn, and protect a user of instances where the wireless connection may drop. The operations include determining that a quality metric of a signal supporting the wireless connection to the access point does not meet a threshold, determining that another access point to the wireless network is not available, and, in response, presenting a warning to the user to protect the user and allow the user to make decisions so that the wireless-communication device maintains the wireless connection to the access point.
