Unregistered users on my home wifi network keep popping up

New user of Xfinity, just had our home network setup three days ago. Using the website to manage the wifi users, I identified all devices and assigned them to our family members. All remaining devices were assigned to an "IDK" identity, and indefinitely paused. But this morning another unregistered user appeared on the network. Do I need to keep checking this daily? How worried should I be about unrecognized devices appearing on our password protected home network?
