Only the device with the Fing app installed (a Samsung A52s) has the problem (MAC not available).  MACs for other devices on the network can be seen.  No such problem before upgrading to Fing 11.5.2.  Have tried "Clear data", uninstall/reinstall, but to no avail...

    Do you have private or random mac addressing set on your phone as it will problems viewing the hardware mac address on your network?

    Try disabling the service & check if it resolves your problem.

    Step 1:
    Go to the Settings app on your Android device.
     
    Step 2:
    Tap on Network & Internet or Connections > Wi-Fi.

    Step 3:
    Tap the gear icon next to the Wi-Fi name of the Linksys router or node your device is connected to.
     
    Step 4:
    Tap on MAC address type.
     
    Step 5:
    Select Use phone MAC.
     
    Step 6:
    Turn OFF your device's Wi-Fi and then ON again.
    Step 1:
    Go to the Settings app on your Android device.

    Step 2:
    Tap on Connections > Wi-Fi.

    Have tried to use phone MAC, reconnect wifi and rescan with Fing, but MAC is still not available on Fing.  Actually, I had been using randomized MAC and Fing could grab the MAC address prior to 11.5.2.  I have another phone (HTC One A9) on Android 7 that is also on Fing 11.5.2.  The HTC phone can see its own MAC and the Samsung phione's MAC though.  It's only the Samsung cannot see the Samsung's MAC itself...
