MX device local status page

By default does any user on the network have access to the MX device local status page (the default gateway IP) also known as the http://wired.meraki.com page?

 

Because a user could see what the default gateway is by doing an ipconfig and go to the ip to see the local status page right?  

 

Is there a way to restrict access to the local status page or wired.meraki.com page only to the admin users?

Under Network-wide / General you will find the below sections where you can disable the local status pages.  They will remain off unless you re-enable them.

You can simply disable the local admin page and then if you need it, as an admin, you can enable it for that moment.

Thanks, so I can only temporarily disable it?  How do I do that on the MX dashboard?

Is there any security issues with leaving it open?

Any security issues with leaving the status page open for all users?

If it is only employees then I'd say it isn't a major issue, but if it is the public then it would be better to disable it unless you need it.
