How do I delete my Fing account?
Set-up a new discussion in the Fing App category, and Fing Team will open a ticket to delete your account. We can only do this manually via our support ticketing system. Fing support and community team will process these requests between 9-6PM UK time Monday-Friday.
Why can’t I see XYZ device in my Fing App device list? Why do I see GENERIC devices?
On iOS 11+ Apple blocked access to the ARP table which means we can no longer get device details by MAC address. We identify devices on a best effort basis. https://help.fing.com/knowledge-base/cant-fing-see-mac-addresses-ios-11/
To help mitigate device identification issues, we’re also launching a desktop version of Fing App called Fing Desktop. This will significantly improve device identification information. We will launch the Beta Test very soon, so sign-up now to try the new product.
