Unknown phones appearing on network screen!!

I have noticed on my network screen various unidentified phones appearing, when I have no phone plugged in, at different times, days etc. When I go into the network screen to check it, after a few seconds it tends to disappear (almost as though someone pulled the plug out). Have looked at the properties, there are mac addresses, but they're not traceable.

Does anyone have any idea what this means, I'm a bit worried about fraudsters but don't know who to ask about it?

I'm not an expert on these things, have tried to find out what it could be but I don't really know much about computers.

Would really appreciate advice. Thanks.

I assume your router has a strong wi fi password?
