You're probably thinking that changing your WiFi network's password will block any person you don't want on your network. This will, in fact, get any person you don't want on your network off; however, if they guess the password again in the future, they will still be able to connect. To legitimately block somebody from using your network, you will need to setup what's called MAC filtering, which uses a device's unique MAC (media access control) address to permanently block that device. Depending on your router, this process may be difficult, easy, or anywhere in between. Here is a list of links for the most popular router brands' support pages dedicated to teaching you how to set up MAC filtering:

While following those steps, make sure that you're filtering the correct MAC addresses. You don't want to filter your own MAC address, since your router will then block you from access.
