HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 - Restrict Printer

HP Recommended
HP OfficeJet Pro 8710


My HP OfficeJet Pro printer is connected to our office network. In macOS, it can be added as a Bonjour Multifunction device under Add a Printer in System Preferences > Printers & Scanners > + > Add Printer. How can it be configured so it does not appear under the Add Printer list as I should be the only one who can use this printer? I do not want to disable Bonjour Multifunction as it will get rid of the scan feature. Thanks!

Hi @edgar_sp,


I'd like to help!


The printer is connected over a network and cannot be hidden from others. 


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
