man ifconfig: |hidessid | When operating as an access point, do not broadcast the SSID in | beacon frames or respond to probe request frames unless they are | directed to the ap (i.e., they include the ap's SSID). By | default, the SSID is included in beacon frames and undirected | probe request frames are answered. To re-enable the broadcast of | the SSID etc., use -hidessid.
