Hello,

I hope this message finds you well.

From time to time I can see an unknown device on my network. It has an open port 62078.

Is that something I should be worrying about?

It seems like no matter what I do I am not able to safeguard my private information and communication from my ex.

please advise.

Have a wonderful week!

Thanks,

F.

    F,
    the unknown device on your network is most probably an iPhone.
    Port 62078 is used by iOS to allow syncing between devices, like the phone and iTunes on a PC, etc. You should not consider it a dangerous thing.
    What you should do though, is try to figure out what device (iPhone?) is the mysterious "unknown" device that appears "from time to time".
    Cheers, Chris

    You may also need to turn off private IP addressing for your iPhone for your network.
