Here is the latest news on Fingbox production as well as all the things that have been happening around the company since our February update. You will be happy to hear that we are still on schedule to start shipping Fingbox in June, so not too much longer to wait! In the meantime read below all the latest updates on the product development and mass production.
Marco (Founder of Fing and Designer of the Fing apps) has been working with the team on the Fingbox app design and features. As you may know, the entire Fingbox experience will be integrated into the existing Fing app. The team has made very good progress on the app as well as the Device Blocking and Wi-Fi Sweet Spot Features.

Next week the Fingbox board samples will arrive in our Rome and Pisa offices. The team will spend a few weeks testing the board before it’s sent to mass production in mid-April.

The Fingbox casing design is done and the factory is now completing the prototypes. Mass production is scheduled to commence at the factory in April.
Earlier we had suggested that we may be able to offer Fingbox in a second color and will send out a survey asking for color choices. After carefully considering this option and examining the costs we are sorry to say that we will not be able to offer a second color choice for Fingbox. At the moment we feel it is more important to focus our resources on perfecting the function of your home network security toolkit – we hope that all of you understand.
We are also finalizing the design of the shipping box and instruction manual for your Fingbox – more on this to come in future updates!
We just finished up the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where Fing was nominated for IoT Security Start-up of the year by the IoT/M2M Innovation World Cup series! Sadly we didn’t win but we had a very successful show, with a huge amount of interest in our technology!
