    I am using this very well but I have come across a problem. For a particular client they want to stop people adding wifi APs to their devices. What I want to do is to do a check on startup that there are only the 'acceptable' APs in the list.
    Using the library MLWifi and MLScan I can list the saved AP's and disconnect them, but I cannot seem to delete them from the list.
    I use the code below to test this out.
    I get a list of all the saved APs but mls.removeWifiAP(nid) always returns False.
    I am running Android 7.7.1 and have already got the permissions:
    I have tried the removeWifiAP on both MLwifi and MLscan and neither actually remove the stored APs.
    Am I missing something or is it a device based issue?
    Thanks

    Code:
    Private mlw As MLwifi
    Private mls As MLScan
    .....       
    Dim wl As List = mls.listSavedNetworks
    For Each item As String In wl
          
    Log(item)
          
    Dim lb() As String = Regex.Split(",",item)
          
    If IsNumber(lb(2)) Then
                  
    Dim nid As Int
                  nid=lb(
    2)
                  
    log(mls.removeWifiAP(nid))
          
    End If
    Next

    Is the AP created by your app? It should be possible to remove if your app did created the AP.

    If not than you can not delete it. Or only using the owner app.

    Thank you for the quick reply :D
    I will be running this as an owner app but as I am debugging at the moment I haven't set this up. I will try this and see if it works :)

    OK thank you both very much - setting the owner app did the trick and I can do all I need :D
