Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

I reviewed your post and I understand that your neighbor is able to print from your printer.

Yes, that could be a possibility. However, I suggest you change the password and it should take care of the issue.

Is your neighbor still able to print from your printer?

What is the printer he is selecting?

From which application software he is printing?

 

Cheers!
