Ability to hide the Hub Site navigation
Add the ability to hide the hub site navigation via some setting or powershell.
The hub site navigation is a list of static links with no security trimming and no way to target an audience. With the introduction of SharePoint SPFx extensions we have the ability to create a header on top of the page. The most common usecase in this scenario is to create a customized menu. However if hub sites are used and you need a customized menu you will have two menu's at the top.
Here are a few business scenario's for a customized menu
1. Company has a project management system in SharePoint. They would like to show all projects a user has access to in the menu.
2. My Links: User has the possiblity to add personal links to a menu and show them in the menu on all sits. Can even be targeted links manged by IT so specific groups of people
3. A large company has users from all over the world. They translate some of their pages into multiple languages. They would like to link to the page with the correct language for that user.
4. Company wants a global menu accross all sites. many hubsites are also involved. They do not want to manage the links at many locations.
It would therefore be nice (if needed) to turn off the hub site navigation on the hub site and all associated sites.
Everyone is being so polite about this...I won't be.
The lack of this feature is absurd. I do not want to be forced to use two menus on my hub site. It looks like utter garbage. It is deplorable that this issue raised over a year and a half ago and has not been addressed.

This one would also help considerably
Security Trimmed Hub Navigation
I agree. The header is useless and requires space
I agree. This would be useful in the case that you want to use your own SPFx megamenu.
Multilingual is also very important

At least make it the static navigation link security trimmed
Same requirement for Communication Sites
