The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

A Service Set Identifier (SSID) is the network name of a wireless network being broadcast by an access point. When a wireless device searches the area for wireless networks that it can connect to, it will detect the wireless networks within its range through their network names or SSIDs. The broadcast of the SSID is enabled by default; however, you may also choose to disable it for security purposes. This way, your wireless network will not be detected by wireless devices in your area.
This article guides you on how to successfully disable SSID broadcast on your access point for added security.
