    Setting up my new rMBP and trying to remember all of these settings on my old cMBP.

    How do I make it so when I select my hot spot that I get prompted for a password?

    Right now my new rMBP just automatically connects to my hot spot and I don't want that.

    System Preferences/Network pane - choose Wifi from the list on the left.
    Click Advanced, then Wifi tab - uncheck "Remember networks this computer has joined"
    If your hotspot is in the "Preferred Networks" list, you can delete the listing for that hotspot.
    If you don't want your Mac to remember any Wifi networks that you might connect to - you can delete every listing there.
    Click OK, then click Apply.

    That should do it...

    Oh, I didn't see me in Preferred Networks even though it was right in front of me!

    I knew it was something obvious.

    Thanks!
