It’s been a whole year since our network security device first started to make its way into the homes of Indiegogo backers. In the past year Fingbox has gone from strength to strength, and we have tens of thousands of wonderful Fingbox users to thank for that. Not only have you shown a lot of patience through the launching of a brand new product, but you have kept us fueled with ideas of where to go next. Let’s take a look back at Fingbox’s first year.
The start of July 2017 saw the first 150 Fingboxes delivered to our Indiegogo backers at our launch events in London and San Francisco. We loved getting the chance to meet the people who had supported us from the start and to get their thoughts on their new Fingbox. In August 2017 we began the task of shipping 20,000 Fingboxes to the rest of our backers. This was a massive undertaking but was very rewarding when we started to see pictures of Fingboxes popping up on social media from all over the world.
Straight after Fingbox was shipped, Marco, Carlo and the rest of the team set to work developing new and enhanced features for Fingbox users. Prioritizing from your feedback, they released several exciting Fingbox updates throughout the year:
In January 2018 we attended CES, the largest consumer tech show in the world. Whilst in sunny Vegas we got to meet with lots of Fingbox backers in our Fing Happy Hours. Cake was provided by yours truly, and we got to hear all about how Fingboxes were settling in to their new homes. In addition to this, CES also awarded us as a Cybersecurity Honouree! It was an honor for for Fing to be noticed at an event of this scale.
In June 2018, we were very excited to release the biggest app update in Fing history. This major UI enhancement displayed the features more logically, making it easier to move around the app. It’s been a busy 12 months but we are looking forward to seeing what the next year brings for Fing.
