Solved!

How do i secure my printer when its connected to an open wifi network (university campus).

HP Recommended
Envy 5030

Someone sent a couple of pages to my printer.  I've checked and Wifi Direct is off.  My printer setting on MacBook air are set to not sharing (not ticked the "share this printer on the network".  For now, I've turned off wifi on the printer.

Hi @SteveAHW

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you with the connectivity related query. 

 

It is not recommended to connect your printer to a public network. I'd suggest you trying printing by connecting a USB or Wi-Fi Direct. If you are using Wi-Fi Direct, I'd suggest changing the password.  

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
