@Ohboy3, Welcome to the HP Support Community! I’m here to help.


You cannot assign a password to the printer itself. Anyone connected to the same network as the printer can access it. So, you will have to make the network secure.


For more info, refer to this document - Minimum Consumer Printer Security Settings for Open Networks


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
