    Unknown Samsung device attempts to mount

    The other evening I had an alert that a Samsung Phone device was attempting to be a device on my computer. It was accompanied by some alert noises too. I have an iPhone (no Samsung device on our property) I donít live close enough to anyone for it to be a neighbor etc. wondering if anyone knows if this could be a remote hack of some sort? I have a laptop running Windows 10 64bit, use Avast & Malwarebytes regularly. I know this post is somewhat vague Iím running an updated boot scan - typing from my phone.

    Thank you for any advice

    I saw such an attempt last week with an HP Envy printer and an unknown cellphone trying a wireless connection. The cellphone was trying to use the Bluetooth Wireless in my Notebook and the printer showed up on the list of Wi-Fi connections available along with 8 nearby Routers which were all Secured. Only lasted a couple of hours.
