Hide SSID Settings

To hide your router’s SSID, go to Interface > Wireless. This will display the Wireless Settings where you can configure your wireless network. To hide the SSID (Service Set Identification) select the “NO” button next to the Broadcast SSID option. This will hide your wireless network from the clients searching for wireless connections and thereby protect your network from hackers.
