I can share my Ethernet Internet connection to WiFi clients using System Preferences, but I'm wondering if/how I can make that network secure (WPA) and not broadcast the network name?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Go to the Search bar System Preferences -> Sharing -> Internet Sharing - Share your connection from ethernet -> to computers using Wifi -> Wifi Options -> Security WEP 128 Bit

This thread is the same as How to share internet with WPA/WPA2 security?
