How to Disable Cox Hotspot

I just got Panaramic WiFi and read in the instructional manual to go to myprofile and privacy settings to turn off Cox Hotspot.  I go to the page and can't find where I can turn off the Cox Hotspot. I don't want to have strangers log into my home network.  I work from home and my company tracks all internet traffic.  

can someone help me turn the hotspot off? 

thank you.

      An enabled Hotspot may not affect your privacy, data usage, bandwidth or WiFi frequency; but it would affect the performance of the hardware within your Panoramic.  Something has to serve the outside requests.  Wouldn't Hotspotters consume your memory, processing and broadcasting resources?

        I believe the Hotspot is limited to 4-5 client devices... but, as you say, it does use the same radio and associated hardware...

        ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
