Forgetting Wi-Fi

 You may need your phone to forget BYUI Wi-Fi when you change your BYU-Idaho password so you can rejoin the campus Wi-Fi using your new password. You also might want to forget the BYU-Idaho wireless network once you graduate from or stop working for the University in order to prevent your devices from connecting to the network.

2. Tap Wi-Fi Settings

3. Choose the BYUI network. 

4. A pop-up will appear showing some information about the network. Verify that the network you have chosen is BYUI, then tap Forget
