This post will teach you how to delete or forget Wi-Fi network on the Galaxy Tab S6. Feel free to use this as personal reference in case you need help carrying out the entire process.
Mobile devices typically recognize any local access wireless network that is based on the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineer (IEEE) 802.11 standards.
With the Wi-Fi feature enabled, your device would be able to detect a list of every access point it has ever connected to as well as every access point within range that broadcasts its presence.
Hence you will see multiple networks in your list.
To remove any of these networks from your device’s directory, manual deletion would be necessary.
And this is how it’s done on the Galaxy Tab S6.
