Update the MAC address database

Suggest new features and other improvements for GlassWire.

I’ve got a fairly recent 2017-ish LG device connected to my network.
The “Things” tab “scan” does not recognize this MAC 38-8C-50-xx-xx-xx

Softperfect network scannner with up to date “oui.txt” (MAC device)
192.168.178.94 38-8C-50-xx-xx-xx 1 ms LG Electronics

“oui.txt” is from standards ieee org (maybe update that once every few months for the local glasswire user?)

Reported. Thank you!

@Tikimotel

If you check our “Things” tab, are we showing the correct Mac Address? Please confirm, thanks.

The MAC address is correctly displayed, but the info pane says it’s “unknown”.
I was expecting “LG Electronics” there. (I’ve checked with Glasswire v2.0.105)

Thank you. We will see if there is an update available for the database we use.

I think that this feature suggestion to improve the quality of the mac address database is probably more important to users (and visitors) than you think.

I say this because the post with the most clicked external link in this forum currently shows 1534 clicks for a mac address database. Another two of the other thirteen most clicked external links are for external links in the same topic.
