    It is possible to remove previously connected wifi network from your android phone. You need to first touch on the apps option from the home screen. There you will be able to find the option called Settings. In setting you will be able to find an option called wireless and networks. There you need to tap on the network name that you want to remove. Once that is done, you need to tap on the option called Forget. This will help in removing the wifi settings of that network from the android phone.

    To remove the WiFi access point settings,

    Go to Settings---> Wireless and Networks---> Wi-Fi Settings---> tap on the access point you wish to remove.

    When you tap on the access point, a popup will ask you to Forget OR Connect.

    If you press the connect button the device will be connected to that access point with the existing settings.

    Alternatively, If you press Forget, the existing settings will be deleted.

    After you press Forget, you need to specify the access point settings again.

    Make sure you give the correct details or else there will be problem in getting connected to the access point.

    Re: Removing the wifi network settings of previously connected wifi network from android phone?

    Hello Guest,
    You can do so in this manner. Point to Menu>Settings>Wireless and Networks>Wi-Fi settings and there you will see a list of wi-fi networks, you recently connected to. Tap on the connection which you want to remove. Select "Forget" Option. Then the connection will be removed permanently from the list of networks. But if you later want the same connection, then you can click on ADD, then after the search completes, the same network would appear again.
    THANK YOU. Hope my answer was useful buddy..! :-)
