    Default Limit wifi..

    Is there any app so I can limit wifi for others (despite them knowing the password of my router) and only I can use it on my device?

    Define limit.

    Do you want to block them from using Wifi? Do you want to throttle them so they use less data on that connection?

    Why not just change the password and not tell anyone what it is?

    Or, you could enable access control on the router, and limit access to only certain MAC addresses, like your phone and computer, but no others.

    So my second suggestion will work. But you'll probably still look mean when someone asks why you can connect to wifi and they can't, or why they could connect to wifi last week, but can't any more.
