    Open Network Without Password in Network Manager (default hotspot)

    Hello everyone,

    In Kali Linux 2.0, I am trying to make a hotspot with the default hotspot (Use as hotspot) in Network Manager. Everything works fine except that it creates the hotspot with a WPA password and I need it to be without a password.
    I have found the file at /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/Hotspot, but I do not know how to get rid of the password. I have tried to just delete the wifi-security section (see code below) but it did not work. I have searched for documentation about the parameters but did not find anything. So, I hope one of you could help me with this?

    /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/Hotspot code:
    HTML Code:
    [connection]
    id=Hotspot
    uuid=2908bf94-cc8f-47c8-bb77-ffcc7fb6e21d
    type=wifi
    autoconnect=false
    permissions=
    secondaries=
    
    [wifi]
    hidden=true
    mac-address=68:A8:6D:50:C0:96
    mac-address-blacklist=
    mac-address-randomization=0
    mode=ap
    seen-bssids=
    ssid=cn-Kali
    
    [wifi-security]
    group=ccmp;
    key-mgmt=wpa-psk
    pairwise=ccmp;
    proto=rsn;
    psk=aHHAAGFj
    
    [ipv4]
    dns-search=
    method=shared
    
    [ipv6]
    addr-gen-mode=stable-privacy
    dns-search=
    method=auto
    Update:

    Found a solution using "nmtui" to edit the connection.
