My firewall reports that on launch on my Mac, Fing tries to connect to Netflix, Facebook, Microsoft etc.  Why?

    Hi @Stoop
    Fing Desktop tries to make use of most used websites to run the scan against the network and hence check for connectivity. You also have the option to mute the checks by clicking on the (?) icon.
