Fingbox showing open ports for Wifi Disabled device

Recently when I turn my iPad Pro WiFi off I recieve a mess from my Fing box that the device I just turned off is in range of my network. So I scanned my network and sure enough there it was, so I did a port scan and found 4 ports open. I then went into settings to double check all wireless and Wifi were off (I’m aware of the changes in ios13) and did another scan and the same four ports were open. 


1080 socks

1083 ansoft-lm-1

8021. FTP-proxy

9090. Zues admin server

 

To make things stranger, when the WiFi is turned on none of those ports are open just the usual iOS sync port. It happens most times I turn the WiFi off, not every time, with the same results and then eventually it turns off. This has happened multiple times recently . Is it possible the device is uploading device activity to another device after it’s been turned off?! It’d be pretty sneaky. If I didn’t have the Fing I’d have no idea it was happening. Anyways, please help!!!

    The reason you may be experiencing this issue in relation to alerts for specific devices, is that you might have changed the state change alert from default value to a different value. The usual default value is 20 minutes. Sometimes, when the device is not in use, it may go to sleep mode and then if the state change is set to the lowest value of 1 or 2 minutes, it can be recorded as offline or out of range. So, when it returns back from the sleep mode, it will be marked as 'Online' and thus providing you with an alert. If the state change alert value is set to more than 20 minutes, then until that time period is finished, that device will still be marked 'Online' and only after that time period it will be recorded as 'Offline', thus providing you with an alert. 

    In order to change the alert settings, please click on the device from the device list and then scroll down to 'State Change Timeout(auto)' . You can then set the value to at least 2 minutes. This will resolve your issue.

    Newer phones and tablets do not turn off the WI-FI radio it just terminates the connections.
    I do know that apple Iphones and Ipads does also my Motorola Android phone does, it has a setting "turn on Wi-Fi automatically" this turns the Wi-Fi back on near hq saved networks. 
    the Wi-Fi is part of the location services 
    if it is an Apple device there is a security flaw in the Wi-Fi update the IOS as soon as possible info at link
