Xfinitywifi bypassing Xfi Pausing

When I pause my son’s phone using Xfi app, his phone connects to Xfinitywifi and continues to have wifi access. Xfinitywifi is not listed in the networks in the Xfi app.

That’s a hotspot, it won’t show on the app

Okay, so does that mean I am unable to pause his access to the hotspot?  Can I shut down the hotspot?

You can disable the hotspot if it’s coming from your device but if they are picking it up from somewhere else, no.

My son still can unlock the pause I set via Xfi app.

there is a way I can see in google that they can bypass xFi setting. How to prevent this?

Would this work for you?
Xfinity button to gear symbol to parental controls to application locks and choose Xfinity Xfi
