Is this a Barn funnel weaver? A different kind of spider? And should I be concerned about it?

Asked August 10, 2020, 11:39 AM EDT

Hello, I have recently seen three of these spiders in a short period of time in my house. This is the smallest of the three. The others appeared darker in color. I am hoping for an ID and to find out if I should be concerned. Do they do any harm to people or the house itself? Are they likely to keep multiplying? I don't wish them any harm but would prefer they find a different home. Any suggestions for how to encourage them elsewhere? Many thanks for your help.

Thank you for writing.
Your picture is too distant to ID. Here is a visual directory of spiders for you to check.
