Block other users from TV's WiFi / Hide TV from network

Question

I'm having issues with people in adjacent apartments to mine connecting to my LG 55LJ55 and casting apps (YouTube mainly). I live in a hotel-like apartment and use a communal WiFi network so this actually happens quite often. Have changed the TV's name to 'guaranteed virus' in a bid to curb this, but you'd be surprised that it still happens! Whilst I can stop apps from turning the TV on, I seem unable to limit who can connect to it when it is on. Any ideas???

I think what you need is a router with wifi that connects to your communal WiFi network. This way you can create your own local network that can not be accessed from the outside.

I don't know if you can do this with any kind of WiFi router so you have to find the right one for your needs.

Good luck,

Peter

@AaronB83 

I am having the same issue even i am not in same network

i think this is happening throug direct connectivity to the device to device  or blue tooth as i made a test using my w10 pc with out connecting to any network and its broadcasting to my TV through the intel wi-di connecticity.

the bad thing is LG doesnt have any control to block this kind of in coming connection

while connecting some body else, the tv will show a pop up message to cancel that connection

if we didn't cancel, it will automatically connecting to the TV

      Hi!!!
      The thing goes like this.  I've shared a folder in a Win7 PC, the folder has one video and one sub srt file.
      When i acceso from my LG 50uk6550 TV the video loads perfectly but the sub won't load.-
      If I copy everything in a pendrive and plug it to the USB everything works wonderfull but not from the network folder.
      Is there any solution??
      Thanks in advance!!

      Sometimes the Showtime and the Starz apps. will not play videos. The little loading icon just twirls. A couple days later they might work fine.  I have tried signing out, deleting the app, reloading it from the LG Store, then signing back in, but it doesn’t solve the problem. Broadband speed tests are above 110 MB. 
      Because it happens with both apps, it seems it could be some sort of an LG handshake or verification problem.
      Casting Showtime and Starz movies to my LG 43UM6910PUA 4K UHD TV from the corresponding app on my iPhone works fine  but it ties up the phone.
      Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution?

      Just purchased a new C9 65" and when playing YouTube videos at any speed faster than 1x on WebOS, the audio in the video distorts. A friend confirmed the same on his LG. Is this a known issue, any workarounds, or anyone we can notify on WebOS team to help address?

      Hello, Since a few days, I do not have the possibility to watch videos on the application youtube of my TV LG 49UB850V in 4K. In the settings, it stops at 1080p. I have a very good internet connection (fiber optic), and especially, there are still a few weeks, I could do it without problem. A test video of youtube in 4K is only available in 1080p on my tv, while on the computer, it is available in 4K. On my most recent LG 55C8 also by the way, the 4K is possible on this same video. I did the test with lots of videos, same result. LG does not know how to solve the problem, I uninstalled and reinstalled the application but it does not change anything. I did nothing special on my TV before this change, it is done overnight. Do you have the same problem?
