These are instructions on how to forget a Wi-Fi network on your Mac.

You may need to do this if your Mac computer keeps connecting to a wireless network you don't want it to. Your Apple device remembers each Wi-Fi network you join, and when in range, will automatically connect to that network again. If you don't want to rejoin that network, or if you want to join using a different password, follow the instructions below...



Step One


Select System Preferences from the Apple menu bar at the top left of your screen.
