Since the last major upgrade to macOS Mojave, I have the Wi-Fi process taking up a lot of memory and in an exponentially way. Time to time I need to force quit it in Activity Monitor because it takes too much memory (around 5 GB). Did anyone else faced the same issue and was able to resolve?

I am using a MacBook Pro 15-inch 2017 with macOS Mojave 10.14.

Edit: I've recently noticed that the Wi-Fi process uses a lot of memory when connecting to the internet through personal hotspot on iPhone.

  • Hi, @Buscar웃 I always have the problem. Do you know how to see which app is using my WiFi a lot in running lsof -i ? – Bastian Nanchen Dec 15 '18 at 9:44

Since the last macOS Mojave release (10.14.4), this problem has disappeared. Therefore, it seems that they tackled it; at least it's been a while since I've had this problem.
