Opting out of Google Cars drive-by wifi snatch AND Microsoft’s Windows 10 Wifi Sense at the same time

September 10, 2016

To opt out of Google worldwide wifi collection you must add _nomap at the end of your wifi SSID

To do the same for Microsoft Wifi sense your wifi SSID must contain _optout somewhere.

So if your current wifi SSID is mysuperhomewifi it is highly recommended you change it to mysuperhomewifi_optout_nomap

Now, I hope there won’t be another “friendly” provider that will require its optingout string at the end of the SSID…
