I tried setting up a new AP using the same SSID as my main network and the Fingbox promptly notified me. The notification only has a "Trust" action and I don't want to trust it. How can I remove this notification from the Android app?

    I powered it off and the alert disappeared after a day or so.

    Hi @fingo
    If the AP is of your network then Fingbox will alert you almost every day until you trust it. The alerts related to the 'Requires Attention' tab stay until 24 hours after the event and disappears after that. If it has been over 24 hours since you received the alert: 


    • Sign in to Fing App and click on Fingbox/Network name

    • Go to the Network tab

    • Click on Events from Manage this Network.

    • Look for the alert in the list and click on it
