    If it's connected just click on it and there's an option to forget. Otherwise go to the three dots in the top right corner, hit "saved networks" and click then click forget. It won't get rid of the network though, he can still search for it and use it.

    If you want to block the phone from picking up the network, you can't do that from the phone settings, but I would have thought there's an app for that sort of thing.
    I tried pressing 'forget' but it still kept coming up.

    Anyway, I spoke to DS and explained that the most likely possibility is that it's the neighbours. He still seemed a bit 'meh' so I bluntly told him that unless he's going to find them and ask permission, then it is stealing. I followed up by saying "it's illegal!". He was horrified! He has vowed not to do it again, in case he "gets arrested and goes to jail". lol. So I think we're all good now.

    I already know all that. I just wanted to know how I find out who owns it and if it's a concern that he accessed it. And how to set it to not come up again. But anyway, we've had a chat and he won't do it again.

    You can't block it from coming up in your list options but clicking 'forget' means his phone will stop automatically accessing it so as long as he doesn't sign into it again you're fine ☺️

    Ohhhhh ok! Well then yes, it did say something about 'not being automatically connected' to that network. Thanks!

    Using someone's wifi isn't accessing someone's device. That's not hacking.

    Agreed... However if someone uses an unsecured connection to then access someone's device without authorization (a known risk of using unsecured public wifi connections) that is hacking.
