This came from a screenshot from an old router from 5+ years ago, that I just pulled out of the closet. Yet something I bought this year, the Deco S4R, doesn't have such features!?

How does that make any sense? Only reason I haven't returned it, is that I threw away the box...

@Serpenio There should be "Blacklist" and "Hide this network from Wi-Fi lists" options in the Deco app

@ImtiazAli  You realize that Blacklisting devices already connected to the network is not the same as blocking devices before they connect to the network.

@ImtiazAli Hiding your network doesn't stop a device from forgetting the network if the MAC of the device is changed. It's still there saved in the device. So, devices are able to circumvent any parental or security features on the network.  

Pretty much why this is asked every other month

Whitelist MAC filtering, please!

I could go on...
