How to Delete a Hidden Wi-Fi Network in Windows Phone 8

information   Information
Whenever you do anything on your phone that requires a network connection, such as send and receive email, get social networking feeds, visit websites, or download apps, your phone automatically connects to a cellular data network to transmit the information. If you're connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi network connection is used instead.

When you add a hidden Wi-Fi network to connect your phone to, the network will remain listed in Wi-Fi settings until you delete it.

This tutorial will show you how to delete a hidden Wi-Fi network that you added to your Windows Phone 8.



Here's How:

1. On your Windows Phone 8, open the app list, and tap on Settings. (see screenshot below)
