Due to issues with accountibility, this feature is no longer supported until iOS device can print with proper credential. Currently it prints as 'guest'.

 

If you have a personal printer connected to your own computer, you can enable Airprint capability on that printer by running a special software. There are free solution and paid solution.
For free solution, on a MacOS, download AirPrint Activator, and on Windows OS, download AirPrint Installer. Please note that anyone will be able to print to your printer from any iOS devices once this feature is turned on without password protection.
