I am trying to limit who has access to my personal Chromecast in my room because I have annoying roommates who like to do pranks.

This seems like A HUGE flaw in the system. What's the point of having "Home Members" if anyone connected to my wifi can cast to ANY castable device in my home? 

My situation is I have 3 autistic boys who don't understand they're not supposed to use any device they want. I have a LOT of casting devices in my home. Just in my office alone I have 2 Nest Hubs, 1 10" Lenovo Display and Chromecast Ultra. 

I work from home for a business that sometimes requires having meetings with associates. I DO NOT need my boys casting from one device to the next to the next over and over. My home is so smart I was required to get a very high powered wifi router, a Asus ROG GTAX11000. I don't even play games. So now I have to get another router and I have to switch from one router to the next for casting just because Google can't limit casing to assigned Google Home Members.

This is ridiculous.

Google too busy meddling in presidential elections to actually do something about securing someone's casting.

I don't use Chromecast, but I just moved into a new apartment where one of the roommates does. Immediately I started getting notifications and could see what they were watching. I turned the notifications off on my end, but I've learned that there's no built-in way to prevent people on your wireless network from seeing what you're watching. Seems like a big privacy oversight from Google.
