Block devices

If a device is added that you don’t want on your network, there are a few things you can do to prevent access.

  • You can pause the internet for that device. The device may still have access to other devices on your network, but won’t be able to use the internet.
  • For guest devices, consider setting up a Guest network to keep your visitors’ devices separate. 
  • You can also change your network’s password to prevent that device from accessing your Wi-Fi network. If you change your Wi-Fi password, all of your devices will also be disconnected until you update those devices with the new password.
