1. An information processing apparatus that performs wireless communication with a wireless-communication mediation device that mediates connection to a network, the information processing apparatus comprising:
a first wireless communication interface configured to perform wireless communication with the wireless-communication mediation device according to a first wireless communication method;
a second wireless communication interface configured to perform, using communication information, wireless communication with the wireless-communication mediation device according to the second wireless communication method different from the first wireless communication method; and
a processor; and
a first non-transitory storage medium storing an application that, when executed by the processor, causes the processor to
acquire, via the wireless communication performed by the first wireless communication interface, creation information required to create the communication information used by the second wireless communication interface to communicate with the wireless-communication mediation device according to the second wireless communication method,
create the communication information containing the acquired creation information and decision information for use in deciding whether the communication information is to be deleted,
determine whether the wireless communication with the wireless-communication mediation device performed by the second wireless communication interface according to the second wireless communication method using the communication information is disconnected,
make a decision, based on the decision information contained in the created communication information, as to whether the communication information is to be deleted, and
continue making the decision as to whether the communication information is to be deleted while the application is not running; and
a second non-transitory storage medium storing a basic software that, when executed by the processor, causes the processor to delete the communication information at the earlier of (i) the determination by the processor that the wireless communication with the wireless-communication mediation device according to the second wireless communication method using the communication information is disconnected and (ii) the decision by the processor that the communication information is to be deleted.
