Fing Desktop Beta Suggestion (Netflix Check)

I've been using the Fing desktop app on the Mac for a while now.
I had one suggestion, at work our firewall blocks access to Netflix, this is a known limitation.  There should be a way to clear the notification and permanently disable that check. 
For that matter we should be able to clear any warning/notification.

    This is a must-have feature.  A verification that "" (or bing!) is available is more beneficial than a Netflix check.

    Bumping this topic as Netflix really is a poor choice for verifying connectivity.  At the least, would be an improvement to be able to choose some provided options (Google, Amazon, Apple).  There is a good reason is widely employed.

    The premium Desktop app allows you to configure additional URL's for connectivity tests.  I've put in my work portal for example and it works as expected.

    @Marc, appreciate the clarification.  If I have to buy premium to fix my experience, I'll just uninstall. The IOS App paired with my Fingbox already provides most of the functionality I need that isn't already handled by my firewall and wi-fi management platform.
