Re: Protect otherd from pairing

Hi @Moni90


Welcome to the HP Forums!


I appreciate you taking the time to share your concern and thank you for using this forum, it is a great place to find answers.


I reviewed your post and I understand that you want to know how to stop others devices connecting to your printer.


I’d love to help!


I would like to inform you that there is no way to put a password or stop the printer from connecting to other devices. I recommend you to turn off the printer when you are not printing.


Please refer to the product manual for more information.


Hope that answers your question and you have a good day ahead.
