Amazon

Hi,

i am recently new to internet security and I wanted to know if I unplug my amazon fire stick in theory I thought that it wouldn’t show up on the active device list however it continued to show up but as soon as I disconnected my mobile phone it became inactive. So my question is there a delay on the firestick or could it be someone trying to hide under my fire sticks ip, I’m probably in the paranoid stages because I was recently attack and it showed me how vulnerable I was.


Any advice helps,

Jack

    Hi @Jack
    How long after did it disappear - there is some threshold in reporting devices online/offline.
    Are you using Fingbox and are you using slower network discovery?

    @JackMason In the fing app click on the Fire Stick and check the value of State change timeout if you set this to 1 minute then it should alert you faster but you also may get lots more alerts as some devices will sleep from time to time. 

    I expect you are just seeing a ~20min delay in the offline status as this seems to be the default (Auto) behaviour.
