Allow profiles for Guest network

I use my guest network to segregate guest users and connected devices I’d rather not have on my main network. I use the profiles to allow or block access for devices based on those profiles. After the 3.18 update the profile ability has been removed from guest devices. 
 

We need this to be enabled again. Without it we lose a level of control that we were afforded previous to the update.

 

I’ve also noticed that the guest network devices in 3.18 have retained their profiles but we are unable to modify them in any way.

    Agreed, this is also standard on Google Wifi. I have some Echo Dots on a Guest network, but want to pause them automatically at night. Can't do that now.

    With guest profiles, could one allow a printer to be shared on the guest network?

    Please bring this feature back, having profile on guest WiFi is very important in order to enable parental control+Network segregation

    This is ridiculous choice for eero. I have many guest devices with no password. I switched to the eero recently and the advice was to create the networks with the same password and name which I did (no password of course for guest) and most of my light bulbs, plugs and echos connected fine.

    So, I have to switch my kids to non-guest and it appears that if I have their profile paused, all they have to do is switch to guest and magically they now have internet.

    What is the solution? It cannot be that I have to put a password on guest and then reconnect all my smart home devices again!

    Why would you not allow guest profiles. I am going to have to look for a different parent control if they don’t change this back and soon!

    What in the world is this? So, I put my kid's friend's devices on the guest network, cause I dont know what kind of crap they have on there and no profiles... So, Am I going to be the family that allows kids to browse porn because my network security sucks so badly? nope. I have to get off of this crap... Darn. Monthly subscriber going to have to cancel. Not that I want to, I want to be lazy, but you are forcing my hand. Who is your product owner to allow this crap?
