A hidden SSID, or Service Set Identifier, is a wireless network name that remains concealed during WiFi scans. This provides an added layer of privacy and security to your network. While it won't make your network completely invisible, it can be beneficial for certain use cases.

How to configure?

To establish a hidden SSID on your Nebula access points, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to Site-wide > Configure > Access points > SSID advanced settings.
  2. Choose the SSID that you would like to hide.
  3. Enable “Hide SSID”.
  4. Save your settings.

By implementing this configuration, the Wi-Fi client will no longer detect the hidden SSID during its scans. The only way to connect to it is by manually entering the SSID name in your WiFi connection setup screens.
(Please note that the exact steps for manual connection may vary depending on the client, client connectivity software, and operating system you are using.)
