    Hi @Erica61904
    The screenshot refers to the number of open ports for your device. For open ports, I would share some insight as The use of ports allow computers/devices to run multiple services/applications. A port number uses 16 bits and so can, therefore, have a value from 0 to 65535 decimal. If you have an open port, then it doesn't mean it is dangerous, it means these are the ports through which anybody can try to connect to your network. You may wish to close these ports if you don't use it. Different port and their numbers are used for different purposes like port 3000,3030 are used by software developers, port 80 is used by web access. Think of it as open windows in your locked house. These two open ports are acting as windows while the router is your main door. 

    When an application is using some service, it makes use of some ports and then after using it, that port becomes free. Once the port is not in use, the Fing App will let you know that the port is open and none of the applications is using it, thus telling you to close it.
