Broadcasting SSID

How do you disable the broadcast of the SSID?

As long as no one knows your SSID password, they can't connect to them.  Or are you having a different issue?

No current issue, but WiFi security practices state that hidden SSIDs are preferred

You can turn off the WiFi name broadcast in xFi by navigating to the Network section, then Edit Wifi and uncheck the box next to "Broadcast WiFi Name". 

Once you disable this, when connecting any WiFi devices to your network, you will need to manually key in your home WiFi network name.
