    Disable "Connect to networks shared by my contacts"

    Hi everyone,
    Settings > Network & Internet > Manage Wi-Fi Settings

    Here on Microsoft help page, there's a tutorial on how to "turn off Connect to suggested open hotspots and Connect to networks shared by my contacts"

    Configure telemetry and other settings in your organization (Windows)

    I used the exact code mentioned there:

    REM Disable Wifi Sense
    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WcmSvc\wifinetworkmanager\config" /V "AutoConnectAllowedOEM" /T REG_DWORD /D "0" /F

    But the above code only turn off "Connect to suggested open hotspots" and not "Connect to networks shared by my contacts".
    How can I turn off "Connect to networks shared by my contacts" via registry?
    Help please :)

    Hello omidsolo, :)

    It should disable both. You might see if restarting the computer may fully apply it.
