    I wasn't really sure where to put this thread. Is there a way to make it so my Mac and iPhone do not remember the Same wifi networks. Obviously I could use a different account, but I would prefer not to.

    I use my Mac for work, and our work wifi has "restrictions" on certain sites. When I get to work my Mac connects to wifi automatically, but because I have this network "remembered" my phone also connects to wifi.

    If I forget the wifi network on my phone, it forgets the wifi network on the Mac. I want to automatically connect on my Mac, but not on my phone. Is this possible?

    I like to just leave wifi on all of the time on my phone. Currently I have to toggle it off when I get to work b.c it wants to connect to my work wifi b.c the Mac knows the network.

    Have you tried going to iCloud settings and disabling Keychain?

    I will give that a try. I don't think wifi passwords is related to keychain though.

    - It should be. But that move will, of course, also disable all other iCloud Keychain functionality.
    I don't believe there's a way to be selective about it.

    "iCloud Keychain keeps your Safari website usernames and passwords, credit card information, and Wi-Fi network information up to date across all of your approved devices..."

    But I don't think you can chose which networks do and don't.

    Thanks. I would rather toggle wifi than not use keychain.
