Product Name: HP ENVY 4520 All-in-One Printer series
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Other teachers and students are printing to my wireless HP Envy 4520 printer, which is a waste of my ink and paper.   How do I set up a password to prevent this from happening in the future?

 

Thank you,

Hi @mpeace,

 

Thank you for joining HP Forums. 

This is a great place to get support, find answers 

 

I understand that your colleagues and students are printing on your printer.

No worries, I'll be glad to help you.

 

We can print only when the printer and the computer or other device is connected to the same network.

 

The alternate option to print wirelessly is wireless direct.

 

Use the below link to print wireless direct.
