“12. Don’t set the Mac to ask before joining new networks.”

Hi Drew. We decided to remove this tip as it was just causing confusion. On reflection, it doesn't seem to really pose a privacy risk because whether the setting is enabled or disabled, the Mac will not automatically connect to open networks. When enabled, it will at least ask the user via a dialog box. When disabled, networks have to be connected to manually.
