    Hello,
    We have wireless internet. On the Windows 7 notebook computer, I entered the SSID (not broadcasted) and the password. Internet works fine on the notebook.

    But this is what I would like: I would like that a person using the notebook be prevented from seeing what the password is (by right-clicking on the network icon, then choosing Properties).

    How can we do this?

    Thank you.

    Hello beauty,

    The only way to hide/mask the WiFi password from other users is give the other users their own "Standard Account" without Admin privileges, which will limit their access to other things as well.

    Hope this helps
