I have a premium account and Fing desktop installed on three machines and 2 iOS devices. My name shows up in each app and When I sign in to the Fing web app it acknowledges my copies of the Fing app  that are installed. Still it says I have no authorized apps. I don't understand what that means. Why wouldn't my Fing apps be 'authorized'?
When I open the Fing apps they acknowledge my account.
I am confused. Searching the forum under 'authorized apps' shows nothing.

    @Waldhaus2, I have moved this to the desktop area for you for relevance.  

    Some application can link with Fing and share data.  You need to authorize it from the specific application.  In the example I am posting below, mine, it shows that I have authorized Fing to share data with Google and IFTT ...  You can also see I can revoke it at any time if so desired.

    Thanks
    I hadn't considered using a Fing data sharing app. Makes sense.
