suspicious device listed under devices

I have been having trouble with my computers for 4 years- 4 diff computers. follows me.  Today on my new ASUS under devices a new device showed up under ":computers" called "full_biscuit"- can not access properties, have no idea what it is. Have had a device called "hidden device" for 4 years- every tech said "its nothing" but its always "on" has no properties- I cannot shut it off- nothing. Now this "full_biscuit"- took snapshot of it- anybody else ever seen this or know what it is. I think I have been hi-jacked

hi Kathy. I'm Greg, and installation specialist and 8 year Windows MVP here to help you.

I believe that is an Amazon Echo Dot.
Do you have such a device? If not it may be connecting or attempting to connect from a neighbor

You might want to change the password on your router, and some other tips are here: https://forums.techguy.org/threads/odd-phones-s...

Any time you think you might be infected, always do a full scan with free Malwarebytes and ADWcleaner.

But to prevent web intrusion keep your router passworded with a strong password and wireless key.
