    Hi All,
    Thanks for your post. Fing requires the admin privileges so that it can read the network and then you to monitor the tools. Thus, the password is required for Fing to install. The password is required only at the time of installation only. If the Fing desktop is still asking password everytime, then it means Fing desktop is not installed under Applications folder which is causing password prompt everytime.
