How to remove Wifi Networks from your devices


Most devices will save or "remember" previous wi-fi networks that you have connected to in the past. This will also save the settings that were used at the time you connected. However, if the settings of the network change, your device's version of those settings may no longer match, which can cause issues when trying to reconnect. One way to resolve this is to delete or "forget" these wi-fi networks from your device, and re-add them again. This article will show you how to forget saved wi-fi networks.
