Windows WiFi Manager


Package test results are passing.

This package was submitted prior to moderation and has not been approved. While it is likely safe for you, there is more risk involved.

After a podcast discussion with Troy Hunt discussing how WiFi profiles for unsecured networks on your laptop or smartphone are vulnerable to spoofing, Scott wrote this utility to find and delete these profiles. You should definitely run this to clean up these values, because someone could imitate an unsecured network - and your device will happily connect to it without your knowledge.

To install Windows WiFi Manager, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install wifi-manager

To upgrade Windows WiFi Manager, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
