    Hi @SingleMommy thanks for your message and I'm sorry to hear that you may have been hacked.
    What behavior is occurring that is leading to this resolution?
    I'm checking also with some other colleagues here about the 2 IP. It could be that your phone has changed IP address which sometimes occur? Or is there other strange behavior you are experiencing too leading to this conclusion?

    Hi @SingleMommy I've checked with some experts.
    - phone can have 2 IPs if it has slots for 2 SIM cards. Do you know whether it has 2 SIM cards?
    - Are both IPs appearing at the same time?
    - Do you have Fingbox?
    - Please can you share the make/model of your phone etc.?

    @Debsolen could this be because of changing IP address on the Fing app?
    For example; the IP address changed and the other device is appearing as greyed out?

    @VioletChepil mentioned one way to have two IP addresses for your phone, the question that I have is could the two IP addresses originate from a private and public address?  If so then that's normal, with your husbands phone it could also be a dual SIM or the use of a VPN which would generate another IP address for that device.
    Without providing any private information, can you list for me the first two octets of the IP address?  Meaning what are the numbers for xxx.xxx?

    Hi all, I have seen this behavior on some devices in my network, and it could be a lot of reasons.
    As @VioletChepil say, It could happen to be a change of IP, and FingBox tends to remember the old IP for a while before discard it, so in the FingApp that device is listed as having 2 IP Addresses.  In general Wi-Fi devices use DHCP to get an IP, so It depends on the configuration of the DHCP Server (commonly the router), like the time of lease and the IP pool size.
    You could test the IPs on another machine (like a laptop or desktop), PINGing at them and see if they respond, try it with the device connected and disconnected from the network to see if they respond either way, and if they respond (or the one that respond if the device is off the network) you could try to extract the MAC Address of it from the ARP table on the machine you are using to test (if windows machine a line in the CMD like "arp -a <IP Address>" should give you the current MAC with that IP and you can see in the FingApp to what device it belong).

    Keep looking up!

    @SingleMommy I realize I am late to this conversation but I am wondering how you know that your phone has two IP's? I like Fing which is why I am here in the forum, but it's a bit buggy. I often see the same device listed twice in my device list in the fing app, with different IPs. The reason for this is that local (in your home) ip addresses are provided by your internet router. they expire, and your router hands out a new one. Sometimes you get the same one, sometimes you get a different one. Fing does not go a good job keep pace with local network changes. This brings me back to my question: how did you determine your phone has two IP addresses? Hav you tried pinging them both and if so are they both responding to PING? Next, if you fully power off your phone and ping those addresses again are they both unresponsive?
