    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!

    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.

    Hello, is there an estimated timeframe of release of the 1.15.1 notes? I see it's installed on my device (and causing issues [already in contact with Robin via email]) but there's no notes on it that I can find.

    I seem to be getting a Fingbox update (for the first time I've ever noticed it, anyway : ) - as today is Jan 27 2022, I don't see any list of notes on a 2022 update. ? Thanks!

    How can I tell? I mean, it's a v2 box, but the app doesn't say anything about the firmware version that I can see. Just says "os: linux ubuntu: version: ubuntu". No 'firmware' version field.

    From the mobile app select the fingbox network and see all devices. Once in that section, you should see something that looks like Fingbox with a gear icon on the top right of the app screen.  Select that and the next screen, you should see the version.  Mine shows its latest as 1.15.4 and its a V2.

    no dice. The Fingbox 'device detail' shows 'brand' fing - 'model': Fingbox v2 - family - 'fingbox'  release date 'jan 2019'. But no sign of firmware anywhere.

    now that’s strange. Here is a screenshot of what I’m seeing. I obscured the MAC address , hence the black box

    Whew. Ok I finally figured it out. When you said "select the Fingbox network and see all devices" - that is really not apparent to this guy who doesn't look at the Fingbox for IOS interface that often. Thus

    a) from the screen Fingbox app defaults to on launch (Home - indicated by the lower left toolbar icon at bottom), in the entry for the Access Point that your Fingbox is connected to, click the *unlabeled hamburger button to the right of 'scan for devices'*

    b) Under 'Monitored Networks', select the network Fingbox is connected to

    c) now, on the upper right, tap the icon that looks like a tiny Fingbox with an even tinier gear to its lower right

    voila - I see it. It does say 1.15.4, which I guess is the latest. 

    UI mission accomplished
