    Can you (or @Carlo_from_Fing) explain a little more about this new beta feature?

    LOL; one more device on my network looking for port 80. I'll have to see what a manual visit to the Fingbox internal webserver looks like when I get my net up and running.

    @pwmeek is that a popular port? I'm checking with @Carlo_from_Fing @Pooh and @pwmeek for more details about this.
    I'm going to announce soon (I hope tomorrow or Thursday!) a new feature to test on Fingbox...perhaps is linked. Let me see.

    Port 80 is the standard HTML (webpage) port. Here's a list at Wikipedia. Don't bother to look at much beyond 80, but you might be interested in how your computer knows what to do with all the various types of information it deals with.

    Port 80 is generally insecure, hence my ask.

    @VioletChepil, can you explain more how the new "Improved recognition" works?
    From the description, it looks like it requires manual intervention to visit the inbox IP from the device's browser. How can I try this?

    Ahh ok so @Carlo_from_Fing has briefed me today and the improved device recognition I'll share access to in next few days. cc @Pooh @pwmeek
    We'll release soon as a little test, something you can do to improve device recognition - this can help fix mis-matches and other things and give you better recognition. It will require some manual intervention via visiting Fingbox IP address. I hope to share this post this week, in next few days all the steps and how to test. Coming very soon...
    I'll update here when I can share access to that!

    Wow, great stuff here.  Anything you need test wise let us know @[email protected] and @Carlo_from_Fing.  I'm sure you will not be wanting for volunteers and testers.

    i saw already the new version of fingbox firmware. Now i saw this threat and read it carefully but i didn't find out what'll happen if i go to fingbox's IP.
    1. Will happen that a new technic of device-recognition will be turned on and run automatically?
    2. will only one "on-demand-recognition" be triggered / started to run?
    3. will a test-flag set that "this fingbox" will be available for testing the new recognition?

    regards,
    mozarella

    Released in firmware 1.14.18, that is in gradual rollout and should have reached your fingbox already.
