Re: Somebody tried to connect to my smart TV!!

Check to see if your TV is set up with "wifi direct" this allows wifi supported devices to connect to the TV.

Also check if it has Googlecast installed as somebody could be trying to cast to the wrong TV.

Do you have homeplug adapters (ethernet over powerline)?

If so, have you manually set the password so it's not the default?

Never resolved but not happend again so not worried. Think it was probably a neighbour coincidence trying to connect to the wrong device.

Thanks.

@Anotheruser1.  Good luck in your endeavours .. mere mortals like me just have to take it. 

‘I foolishly bought an expensive LG smart and a little surprised it feels the need to track me.. all I wanted was a tv!

Hello
Yep me as well LG is terrible for WiFi as well it doesn’t always auto connect to wireless I have 3 LG TVs and one Samsung. Samsung kicks **bleep** over LG.
Notice you can’t even install itv player or use itv player via the browser invalid codec.
Starting to think it’s LG fault. But I’m just waiting for it to happen again Although Bt logs shows device connection at time the incident occurred but as the logs are so limited it could have came from the tv to the router or vice vers.
Good luck with LG tv class action law suit sold to me as the best tv to use on the internet.

If at all possible you should use a wired connection. This will give you a far better signal than a wireless connection which can be prone to interference.

If you are using a wireless connection you should make sure you have turned off "Smart Set Up" on the Homehub/Smarthub.
