    How do I delete my printer which is "open" from the list of devices on app?

    Are you sure it is your printer and not a port on a router?
    Only routers/access points are displayed by inSSIDer.
    Client devices are not.

    It sounds like your printer might be broadcasting it's own SSID for direct printing purposes. I like to connect the printer to my network as a client (preferably over ethernet if possible, but over Wi-Fi is still fine), and then turn the direct printing feature off to keep that SSID from broadcasting.

    Look around in your printer's settings (usually through the screen and controls on the printer) to see if you can turn the direct printing feature off.
