Network scan shows FireTV Stick I do not have

I just started using the desktop app so am a little unclear what it is telling me. The scan shows the devices I own plus a generic Amazon device and an Amazon Fire TV Stick (though these are not currently connected - i.e., greyed out). I do not have and have never had any Amazon devices. Does this mean that a neighbor tried to connect to my network or succeeded in connecting to my network? If so, is the appropriate response to change the password for my network?

    Hi @NineOfSeven welcome to our community and thanks for asking your question.
    I would consider changing your wifi passwords and doing a thorough sweep of your home to ensure that there isn't a Fire Stick somewhere.  The app has to receive the information in order to display it, and if you have the Fing device, you can block the device until you can decide if it's legit or not.
