Fing can be downloaded and installed on your desktop. You must sign in to the app, and to do so, you must first create an account on the Fing website. It’s a completely free account, and you can sign up using either Facebook or Google.
Fing performs a network check when it first installs to ensure that everything is up and running. These checks can be carried out without having administrative access to the router. It’s a good idea to take care of any issues you find.
Under your network name, go to the Connectivity tab and click the Scan for devices button.
The scan takes less than a second, and the list you receive will identify the device by type, such as phone, desktop, tablet, router, any access points, printers, and so on, as well as the operating system it runs.
When you click on one of the listed devices, you’ll see the date and time it was last online, as well as its MAC address and IP address. You can give these devices names in Fing, such as a name that indicates who the device belongs to. When an unauthorized device connects to the network, this makes it easy to spot. It’s especially useful if your network includes a lot of Android devices. They don’t allow users to name their devices. iPhones can be given a device name to make them easier to recognize.
Fing does not have the ability to block or reboot a device from the network. You can only boot a device from the admin panel of your router, and the same is true for blocking. The router is where you can blacklist devices based on their MAC address and prevent them from connecting, but Fing does not have access to your router and cannot access it.
