Typical Wireshark  with filter arp.src.proto_ipv4 == shows queries at
16:11:47.90, 16:11:58.13, 16:12:47:90, 16:12:58.03
Why is this so frequent?
This verges on flooding!

    As far as I know it's not something you can adjust. It's not something most would likely want to change since it would make Fingbox less responsive.

    @Carlo_from_Fing @Ciaran may know more about it, or perhaps turn it into a feature request.

    There is an option to slow down frequency of ARP / discovery from fingbox: enable slow discovery mode from fingbox settings, from mobile app.
