Password protect printer

HP Recommended
Envy 4500
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My printer is connected to my home wireless network which is fine, all in the home can use it from their devices. It also shows up as an available wireless network when you search for wireless networks. My network is password protected.  I don't want neighbors or strangers to be able to log in through my printer. How do I secure it?

Thanks

Sorry there no was to add a password to print on the printer.

 

With that said as long as your printer is connected to your routers SSID with password, it is protected by your routers wireless security.  Not an issue.

 

Just make sure Wireless Direct is disabled in the printer.  It is not to be used with a router.
