.local & .lan

It seems I have too many devices linked, I need to unlink one. But my main computer appears twice on the list, as .local and .lan. Do I need both? What are they good for? Which one should I unlink?

Hi @moonson_co; welcome to our Community

 

I'd recommend checking your connected devices through your account's Security page and from there, once you've established which connection is the oldest one from those two, unlink it and leave the one with the most recent ping to our servers. 

 

Let me know if you have any more questions.
