R6700v3 router admin page accessible from outside world

on my R6700v3 router I cannot find the option "Turn Remote Managment On" to turn it off.  I noticed that if one knows/gueses my external IP address, one can access the router admin login page!   I don't want that accessible from the outside world.  Any ideas?  Thanks  -alchle

In the user interface, try Advanced -> Advanced Setup -> Remote Management.

 

It is on page 99 of the user manual you can download from the downloads section above.

NETGEAR has moved remote management (access anywhere) for many router models from the Web-based UI to the Nighthawk app. Have a look in the Nighthawk app to turn it off.
