I have a Samsung - Galaxy Tab A7 10.4" Wi-Fi model # SM-T500NZAAXAR that is being identified as an Apple product running the Android operating system.  How cool is that?  Anyway, how do I go about getting this corrected?

    Hi @ba2

    To correct the misidentified device on Fing desktop, I would suggest to:   

    • Open the Fing Desktop 

    • Sign in and Go to Home tab   

    • Scan for devices. 

    • If the device is still recognized incorrect then Click on the specific device   

    • Click on Icon "Recognize" device   


    To manually identify the misidentified device on Fing app, I would suggest to:   

    • Sign in to the Fing app 

    • Go to Device List    

    • Click on the misrecognized device. 

    • Below the device name and O.S you will find a text saying "Did we get this right?"  

    • If you click on (thumbs_down icon) then it will allow you to manually enter the correct O.S and model of the device.
