    Disallow users from connecting to other WiFis?


    Hi, I run an office with Windows 10 on all the PC.
    Well, except maybe three.

    Anyways, I want to allow connection to only one WiFi, which is my WiFi. How do I do this?

    This is to prevent users from connecting to their Hotspots and stealing my data.

    Thank you.

    This forum has been of so much help to me in the last few months. Thank you.

    You could try group policy: How to use Group Policy to white list wireless networks

    Or you could try NetSetMan Pro to pre-configure only your WiFi to be enabled.

    Alright, thank you.
    But anything without using GPEdit.msc?

    The three laptops I have came with Windows Home Edition.

    Then you better upgrade them to Windows Pro. You shouldn't be using the Home version in a corporate setting.

    My Windows 10 Pro PCs with GPEdit.msc do not have this option.

    Is there any alternative option?

    Is it because those PCs don't have a wireless card. That setting requires the system to actually have a WiFi card.

    Wouldn't a better solution be to remove the WIFI nic cards from the workstations, and have them connect via Ethernet to the hub...assuming of course you have a hub or switch on your system. No WIFI cards in the workstation will prevent them from connecting to any WIFI hot spots. Anyway, just a thought.

    I have a USB WiFi adapter on all PCs.
