Hello,

Well, I can't identify it because it's been squished, but I can tell you it is not one of the harmful spiders (e.g. black widow, brown recluse). Maybe a wolf spider? Unfortunately I can't see the eye pattern. Wolf spiders sometimes wander indoors. Make sure your doors and windows are in good repair to prevent them from entering. Otherwise, no need to worry.
