Hackers-connected-to-Google-Home-wifi

I noticed there are some illegal devices connected to my Google Home wifi - although I can pause the (Windows) device, it is able to start a new connection to my Google Home wifi router.

Does anyone know how to block or deny connection to Google Home wifi from illegal/hacker devices based on the device/computer name ?

Hi @VICTORCHARLES 

Change your wifi password and make sure only you have access to that connection.

Hey VICTORCHARLES,

 

Can you explain a bit more about the device? Are you certain it's a device that hasn't been on your network previously? Does it just show up as a "Windows Device" on the device list and nothing more? Does it connect constantly, or show up randomly? If there's any more you can let me know about the device, it would help sort this out.


Thanks,
Jeff
