Review Wi-Fi Networks

By default, the ‘Wi-Fi’ tab lists all Wi-Fi networks configured on the selected device, excluding networks managed through group policies. To review Wi-Fi networks configured per device, follow the next steps:

  1. Click the ‘Devices’ node
  2. Select a device
  3. Click the ‘Wi-Fi’ tab

In addition, you may toggle between ‘Show Group Settings’ and ‘Hide Group Settings’ to also populate this list with group policy managed networks.

Note:  2X MDM cannot display networks which were added by the user for iOS based devices.

Edit and Delete Wi-Fi Networks

Wi-Fi networks may be edited or further removed per selected device.

Manage Wifi Networks

You may do this by selecting a device and navigating to the ‘Wi-Fi’ tab following the next steps:

  1. Click ‘Devices’
  2. Locate and select a device
  3. Click the ‘Wi-Fi’ tab
  4. Select a Wi-Fi network
  5. Click ‘Edit’ to adjust the Wi-Fi network settings or ‘Delete’ to remove the network
  6. Confirm the changes

The Push notification dialogue box shall appear to confirm the changes were successfully pushed to the device and network edited or removed.

Note that Wi-Fi networks configured directly from a group policy may only be edited or removed from the group policy which they had originally been configured from.

      Hi there, from the 2X MDM portal > Devices > Select a device > Policy > Enable ‘Send location updates’ for iOS and for Android enable ‘Force GPS and Network’ and for iOS.

      This will request that the device user enables these options.
