    Hi @Maureen59_

    It is now possible to manually recognize devices: when Fing recognition is not sharp enough, you can manually provide brand and model of your devices. Which will hopefully be of benefit to you. 

    To correct the misidentified device on Fing desktop, I would suggest to:   

    • Open the Fing Desktop 

    • Sign in and Go to Home tab   

    • Scan for devices. 

    • If the device is still recognized incorrect then Click on the specific device   

    • Click on Icon "Recognize" device   


    To manually identify the misidentified device on Fing app, I would suggest to:   

    • Sign in to the Fing app 

    • Go to Device List    

    • Click on the misrecognized device. 

    • Below the device name and O.S you will find a text saying "Did we get this right?"  

    • If you click on (thumbs_down icon) then it will allow you to manually enter the correct O.S and model of the device.
