Use this tweak to prevent users from viewing and changing network settings from the Lock screen on Windows 10.

The Lock screen on Windows 10 is the first screen you see before signing in to your account, and it's quite functional. Using the personalization settings, you can configure a number of options, such as app status, a custom background image, and even enable Cortana to perform some basic task when your PC is locked.
Although Windows 10 let you disable many of the Lock screen features, the operating system lacks options to remove certain functionalities, such as the Network icon, which sits in the bottom-right corner, and allows anyone to view and disconnect your device from a Wi-Fi network.
The good news is that if you're trying to make the Lock screen more private, you can tweak the operating system to remove the Network button from the Lock and Sign-in screen, just like removing the Power options.
