This was not happening before and is surprisingly now.
When i try open the Fing app on macOS, it shows me a 'Fing Service not found' message.
My home WiFI is working fine. Not sure why is this message appearing on the Desktop app.
If I visit, I can see all data.
Is this a known issue? Can someone please let me know of this can be solved?

    Hi @Gautam

    In order to address your query, first I would like to confirm that you are:

    • Installing the Fing Desktop under the 'Applications' folder only. If not, Fing Desktop won't be able to connect to its services. If it is not, it will appear as 'Unidentified' or ‘Undefined.
    • In this case, the service might have been disabled and cannot launch until the service is re-enabled. This is likely the result of the service having been unloaded using 'launchctl' in conjunction with the -w switch. This will disable the service. This condition can remain, even if the software is uninstalled and reinstalled.

    To resolve:

    Re-enable the disabled service using the following commands:

    • sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.fing.service.plist
