The Guest Mode on Chromecast is an interesting feature that lets your friends or family members cast the media content without connecting to your home WiFi network. By enabling it, you can secure your WiFi network by not sharing your WiFi password. Upon enabling this feature, Chromecast will emit a WiFi beacon, which will be detected by your guest’s smartphone automatically while using Chromecast-supported apps.
How to Set Up Guest Mode on Chromecast
 Connect your Google Chromecast to the HDMI port on the TV.
 Launch the Google Home app and select your Chromecast device.
 On the next screen, select the Settings icon on the top right corner.
 Find the Guest Mode option and tap on it.
 Now, turn on the toggle next to the Guest Mode. Also, note down the PIN for future use.
