Deleting a client

Can you delete a client out of Meraki that no longer exists. Second question, can you manually add a client with the same name but different MAC Address.

There's no simple way to delete clients from the dashboard. However, they will transition out of the dashboard if they haven't been seen in 30 days. You can also give them a 'blocked' policy in the meantime to ensure that they can't access anything if they reappear.

However there was a mention that something like it might be possible leveraging GPDR privacy features

Not sure of manually adding a client with the same name but different MAC (I can't see why it wouldn't work) but you can definitely re-name discovered clients to have the same name.

If your dashboard is based in Europe, you can forge a client by going to Network-wide > Clients, tick a client's box, and click the Forget button on the top left.

You can also pre-configure a client and give it a custom name:
