When you visit locations like hotels, cafés, and other institutions, you may connect your Mac to a "public" or "guest" wireless network.
Prevent your Mac from remembering a Wi-Fi network
When you connect your Mac to a secure wireless network you will be prompted to enter the network password. Remove the check beside Remember this network to prevent your Mac from remembering this network in the future.
Choosing to not remember a network is the best option for networks to which you need only temporary access, or that have passwords that change regularly.
