What is a local address

I thought a local address was the address assigned to the device you are using. But, while on my iPad(192.168.1.118), Fing says my local address is 192.168.1.66, which is the address of my phone.

    Which device did you take your last scan on?  I'm thinking that is the local address it's using.  Try scanning again from the mobile app on the iPad and see if it flips.
