Question

How do I forget a wifi network on a mobile device?

Answer

Removing a WiFI network from a mobile device is easy.

You will need to do this immediately following our StarID transition to erase the old connection settings.

After you remove the old connection info, you’ll want to refresh and connect to the new StarID-credentialed network.  Please see our other articles about adding a WiFI network to Android, iOS, and Windows Mobile phones.

 

For Android (general instruction using Google Marshmallow):

  1. Open Settings on your device, and tap on the WiFI icon to access WiFi network options.
