It has been a very busy and exciting year for Fing. Our no.1 network scanning app grew to 15 million downloads, with 7 million active users. 700k scans are now performed a day using the Fing app, with over 1 billion devices discovered in the past year!
The most exciting thing to happen this year though has to be the launch of our new network security and Wi-Fi troubleshooting toolkit for homes, Fingbox. Getting off on a great foot, the Indiegogo campaign hit its $25k target within the first hour of launching! So far Fingbox has gained over 5000 backers and raised over $400,000. With less than a week to go until the campaign ends, we are hoping to hit our $500k stretch goal that will allow us to add our new Home Digital Fence feature to the box for our backers to enjoy.
More than just the backing of the campaign, we have been overwhelmed by the support of our Fing fans, who have been cheering us on, liking and sharing our social media posts, and telling all their friends about the campaign. So needless to say, we are very excited to be taking Fingbox to CES 2017, where we will get to meet some of these fans face-to-face, say a massive thank you, and discuss where they would like to see Fing going next in the world network security!
Our team will also be debuting their new Fing T-Shirts, so if you are heading to CES 2017 make sure to come and say hi at booth 50813!
