    Hi there,

    I "clean installed" Sierra on a Mac mini (previously El Capitan).

    The Mac mini during the installation was connected to the Internet via ethernet. Before the clean installation (on El Capitan) I was using Wifi.

    After turning on the wifi on the new Sierra installation my Mac mini was connected to Wifi without asking me for the wifi password. How is this possible? I don't use iCloud Keychain.

    Mine did too. Maybe it is like iPhone now. If you have previously input the network password, when you connect to that network again it remembers your password input.
    Like walking into an old coffee shop with an iPhone.
    As soon as you in range it connects.
