I am connected to a network named Selina guest,  fing is showing my host name as ipad-6.selina-guest
Am I correct in assuming that the router/ap has identified me as using an iPad
Or am I connecting to the access point through an iPad? 
Because I'm using a Samsung tablet running 4.4.2.

    Hi @Novicenelly welcome to the community and thanks for asking your question.
    That does sound like a bug, as the way that I read the information that you've provided, would say that you're on an iPad.
    Can you provide some screenshots (remove/redact any personal or sensetive information) so that we can have a visual?  We may need to escalate this up to the developers for an explanation.

    Hi @Novicenelly
    May I know which Fing App version are you using? It may be due to using earlier version of Fing App.

    I believe it is due to the earlier version of Fing App. With new version, the device discovery has been improved. Can you check with any other updated Android device with latest android version and see if Fing App works correctly?
