In my list of Wi-Fi Preferred Networks I'm able to remove them 1 by 1, but that takes forever. Is there any way to select all the Network Names I want to remove and delete them at the same time?

You can multi-select & delete from
System Prefs > Network > WiFI > Advanced…
Shift ⇧ or Cmd ⌘ Click to select multiples, then hit the — button underneath.

Note that this will also clear the same settings from any linked iDevice.

  • Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that this removal does not actually become active until you click "Apply" in the Network Preferences window underneath? May 19, 2017 at 19:08
  • Nothing in Network prefs activates until Apply is clicked. If Apply is clickable, you need to click it, always.
