Why does the XB6 create a SSID with no name for the 2.4ghz?

So basically after installing the XB6, I tried using the WiFi Analyzer app on my phone to see my signal strength. From the app, it shows that the XB6 projects a secondary SSID for the 2.4ghz which has the same channel and signal strength as the main one. This secondary SSID has no name (a question mark) and description is <Local Admin>. This also shows up on my laptop as "Hidden Network."  From what I noticed using the analyzer app, this no-name SSID only projects for a few seconds and then goes away. After a few seconds, it comes back and it basically repeats the same cycle. I tried contacting Shaw about it but the techs don't really know what it is. I thought it was maybe a Hotspot or something but if it is, we should seriously have the option to opt out of it. If anyone sees this on their XB6, please let me know.
