I have 5 devices on my Wi-Fi signal and four of them are mine and the other one is [email protected]

How can I block the unknown signal and does anyone know if that's like a router or anything for hacking Wi-Fi

    @Buell: Are you absolutely certain that the "[email protected]" device doesn't belong on your network?  I wasn't familiar with the reference, but a quick search[^1] suggests that it's often a network router from an ISP, often Time Warner/ Spectrum.  (Note: the term doesn't seem to commonly be affiliated with 'hacking Wi-Fi').

    Fing Support has an article on Device blocking[^2] if you have a Fingbox.  That same article also explains why the Fing app by itself can't facilitate the blocking.

    That's the good thing about opinions... they don't have to be backed up with facts.

    Yes, I'm 100% sure that's your router, because my router is also a Sagem, and that's the same name for it in my network (including the specific model of course) So no worries, everything is okay :)
