    Hi @Luffy

    Initially, I would like to confirm if you have a Fingbox or not. The Fing App is a free network scanning App. In order to block devices from joining a network, you will need a Fingbox. Fingbox is an external hardware that plugs into your router and gives you enhanced visibility, security and control over your network. To find out more: https://www.fing.com/products/fingbox/.


    If you have a Fingbox, I would like to confirm if you are connected to the Fing App with the account on which the Fingbox is associated. You can verify this by going into the Fing App settings and checking the name of the Fingbox. Alternatively, if you see three tabs on the bottom of the main app display: 'Devices', 'Network', & 'People', this will indicate that your Fing App is associated with a Fingbox. If it is the correct account and you can see your Fingbox, then please follow these links for articles relating to device blocking:

    Automatically block new devices should be on by default.  Just my $0.02.
