Fing at Startup

On my iMac running Catalina Fing starts up automatically at boot.  The recap report is very nice, but what is it doing after the report is created ? Is there any reason to leave it active ?  I also have a Fingbox.

    Hi @BN336 thanks for asking your question.
    I leave mine active as it advises whether or not there are any issues with the internet connection from the ISP, or whether a device has been added to the network, etc.  If you need additional resources for a particular process, you can opt to not start the application upon device startup and choose it when you have need of the information that it can provide.

    To further add comments, you can disable the automatic start up of the Fing desktop by clicking on the version number from the bottom left corner and then click Preferences. Thanks

    I see those notifications with my Fingbox, I thought, and that is my question, does this monitor add anything to what I get with the Fingbox ?  I also use IFTTT to forward on Fingbox notifications to my cell. Thanks for previous answers.
