Intune - allow secured WPA2 wifi connections only?

Question regarding Wifi options:

Now I can only block - Hotspot or Block wifi all together.

How can I configure a Windows Device Configuration Profile to set up requirements for allowing only WPA-WPA2 ++ wifi connections?

If its not possible through default template - could you please provide a workaround.

We do not want to block our users to connect to WIFI connection completely, only prevent them to connect to open / not secured connections.

Thanks

@Sater-0551 Thanks for posting in our Q&A.

For this issue, intune can support for allowing WPA/WPA2 wifi connections. We can read the following article about Wi-Fi settings for Windows 10 as a reference.
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/intune/configuration/wi-fi-settings-windows#basic-profile

However, for the requirement that prevent users to connect to not secured connections, currently it is not supported. During my research, I find other customer who has the same requested posted in Intune uservoice as below. We can vote and post our detailed request here. This is a place to collect customers' requirements and problems.

Thanks for understanding and have a nice day.

Allowing something - WPA2 can only be done for corporate wifi connections.
Which is not the question here since everybody works from home.

  • Besides that - nice that you can allow something. But it does not mean other connections are not allowed.

  • So security wise - no solution.

I found that same page to vote.

I have voted - which is probably not going to work since it has already been on there since 2016. Seems useless.

.

Can I ask you advice on how to implement a rule to prevent users from connecting to non-secure wifi connections/ open wifi sources.
Outside of Intune - which can be imported in Intune.

@Sater-0551 Sorry, currently there is no way to implement this feature.

To make intune better, I will try my best to collect information about this requirement to intune product team. But I can't guarantee feedback from the product team. Once I get a reply, I will let you know as soon as possible.

Thanks and have a nice day.
