    Hi,

    I've switched my modem/router to not broadcast SSID, I can get my Surface to connect to it but it made me think that my Surface is probably broadcasting itself. For extra Security I want to make the Wi-Fi built into the Surface invisible if possible? Earlier I had someone else's phone showing up in the File Explorer/Network bit and I couldn't remove it!!! What do I do?

    Your title was modified as the HowTo is reserver for a tutorial, not a question.

    My guess is that you can't do what you're think you cn do as your Surface is not the/a host. You should be covered by your user name and password.

    Well your Surface Pro 4 should be invisible to all that don't know the password to your network. If your network is secure with a good password you should good.
