Since some time Fing keeps detecting my own devices over and over, asking to identify/assign. it never happened before and it is extremely annoying. Any solution? thanks

    Hi @MarcoP, by any chance are the device in question apple devices?  Apple has introduced a new feature called MAC address virtualization or private Mac addressing, that may be causing this.  Please see the following link for more info and ways to mitigate for now.  https://www.fing.com/news/private-mac-address-on-ios-14
