Unknown device keeps prompting to allow/disallow connection.

My boyfriend has a roku streaming device this his spare tv and we keep seeing this message that pops up for a brief moment prompting to "allow or disallow connection". We haven't been able to catch what it says it's trying to connect to before the prompt is seen choosing "disallow" and the message disappears. We can't figure out what it is. Nothing other than the roku device is shown as connected in the settings and we made sure no one in the house is doing it.

Re: Unknown device keeps prompting to allow/disallow connection.

I would suspect some app on one of your phones.  Try turning off both of your phones and see if it still happens.  You can also disable "Network access" under Settings->System->Advanced system settings->Control by mobile apps.

Let us know how you make out.
