Offline devices cannot be deleted

I have two devices that are online in the network scan, but they also each have a listing as being offline from some time ago. I selected each to delete them, but that does nothing. They just stay there grayed out.

    Hi @davidavdavid
    Can you share the screenshot of which feature you are using to remove those devices? 

    Deleting an online device from a Fingbox network has always been disabled. That is because, if the device is online and you delete it, Fingbox will automatically re-create it at the next scan because it's an active monitoring system. If the user logs out of the account, the network he's seeing is not "live data" anymore, and therefore you can delete it.  

    * Deleting a device on a manually-scanned network is instead always possible, regardless of the online/offline state, because that state is just a snapshot of the past and doesn't get automatically updated.
