Confusing device icon #27
Hi, thanks for trying it out!
Actually, the icon is derived from a randomly generated device ID using my hash icon package.
The icon is actually meant as a security feature: If an attacker were to observe you while pairing, they could enter the code faster than you and you'd get paired with the attackers device. If the icon was configurable, the attacker could chose the same icon you're using and you wouldn't notice anything wrong. Since you can't change the icon, you would immediately notice that something went wrong, as the attackers device would almost certainly have a different icon.
I should probably add that to the FAQ, thanks for the question!
