    I'm using internet sharing from my MacBook to my iPhone, is there anyway that I can secure my WiFi access point so that other people can't use it?

    when i read this i think you mean you used internet sharing in the system preferences, and you share your ethernet connection via airport? in this case i assume you want to assign a key to the connection.

    how to do this:
    -open your preference pane
    -click share/sharing
    -click internet sharing
    -select share the connection via "ethernet"
    -check the checkbox "airport" to share the ethernet connection via airport
    -now click the button that just appeared:"airport-options
    -set a name of your network and set the key
    -click ok
    -now check the box next to "internetsharing" in the list


    now you are all set.

    i hope this helps
