From the list, you can view device which connected or has connected before , even there are offline now. So you can detect either your network has been breached  by someone or not. Awesome right.

To block intruder, simply click that device and you will have device detail. Get the MAC Address because we want to block it permanently instead of block by IP which usually will change once they reboot their machine or connected to other tower for mobile.

Next step, login into your unifi router, usually 192.168.0.1 . Unless you changed the password, the default login  from factory is

username: admin
password:

unless its different you maybe need to check on internet or with unifi operators

 

Once login, go to Advance > DHCP Filter. Insert MAC address you get from Fing and click Add.
