What is a kffowi device?

You must be curious as to what does kffowi stand for or what does it even mean. Well, you don’t have to worry as kffowi is the code name of the Amazon Fire Tablet. If you right and open the properties of the device, then you will notice that the properties state the manufacturer as Amazon and the model as KFF0WI.

Why is this happening?

Well, if you don’t own any Amazon fire tablets or any kindle devices, then you should change your wifi network password, as someone else with an Amazon Fire tablet could be connecting to your network and which is why their device is showing in your network-connected device list.

In the case of Spotify randomly connecting to a KFF0WI device, make sure your Spotify account is safe. For further safety, change your Spotify account’s password. Also, make sure you have changed your wifi password and set the encryption to WPA2.
