How do you turn off the XfinityWifi unsecure guest Wifi?

I do not own an Xfinity Modem. When I go into my settings it says I am unable to turn off the HotSpot. I want to turn off the XfinityWifi option at night. How do I go about doing this? I show XfinityWifi unsecure and secure, I want to turn off the unsecure so it is not accessable at night.

It’s not yours, you’re picking up a neighbor’s hotspot. Try forget network?

When I checked to see where the closest Hot Spot was located, it showed it about a half a mile away. I checked on the Xfinity website, is this not accurate?

Xfinity says home hotspot locations are not (currently) shown on the map for privacy.
