I’ve been getting the notification “wifi attack detected” from Fing a dozen or more times this evening - never seen it before - and can’t find any assistance within the Fing app about what this is and/or suggestions what to do at all about the issue on the Forum. 
The MAC address of the attacking node is the same in each alert, my ideas what to do about this?

    Hi @Gary
    As I have checked your account settings and Fingbox, it seems like this is your access point that was not added to your Fingbox network thus any network gateway changes were identified as an attack. If you add this access point to your Fingbox network then it will resolve your issue.

    Hi @Robin , i have been having a similar experience. Is the cause of my notifications the same as above? As with Gary’s issue, i cant find any further info in the app.

    thanks.

    Is the MAC address identified in screenshot is one of your access points? If yes, then you need to add that access point to your Fingbox network so it can be trusted.
