I have 36 devices on my network. From ring door bell, printers, desktops, cell phones, tables, smoke/CO detectors, etc. lately fing has sent notification of blocked device on one of more of these devices. 
I have been getting the notifications of the blocking, but it’s still a pain that I have to go and unblock them.
Has an update been released with an issue.

    Hi @Bill_OH
    If you are not blocking these devices, you can try to disable "Automatic block new devices" from the Network tab and then check if the issue persists?

    These devices have been managed by the Fing for more than a year, they are not new devices. They showed being OK for that that time.
    Case in point, my Samsung S20 cell phone I’ve had since they were released. Yesterday it went blocked and i had to unblock it. This has happened to multiple device lately that have been unblocked for more than a year.

    Hi All,
    One thing you need to check if the devices which are getting blocked has any private mac address or random mac address enabled on them which may be the case for their blocking. Also, is it same set of devices getting blocked or random?

    none of the devices (except iPads) have random Mac addresses. The iPads have this option disabled.

    This just started in the last week. Have there been any fing updates? When was the last update. How can I tell what update is installed?

    There has been no updates from our side. Can you share the screenshot of the blocked devices on Fing app?
