Over time, you may have granted access to multiple devices, family and friends, and even possibly your neighbours, thus losing track of who has access to your LTE WiFi internet. This can affect your bandwidth access, internet speed, and data usage so you may want to remove or block unwanted users.

1. Change the WiFi password.

The easiest and most effective method is to regularly change your WiFi password. This will forcibly disconnect all devices from your WiFi network. To re-join the network, you will have to enter the new password on all your devices. Anyone who doesn’t have your new password won’t be able to connect to your WiFi. Changing the password is a good way to keep your network secure.

2. Block users via MAC address filtering

Every device that connects to your network has a unique MAC address, (MAC = media access control), including smartphones, computers, printers, and gaming consoles. The MAC address identifies one device from other devices on the same local network. You can use MAC address filtering to identify connected devices, block connected devices, and allow blocked devices back onto the WiFi network.
