Knowledgebase: CommView WiFi

My firewall software warns me that CommView for WiFi is "attempting to access the Internet." I am aware that some sites are able to track users by collecting the information sent by their programs via Internet. Why does CommView "attempt to access the Int
Three activities may alert your firewall. First, it may be an attempt to resolve IP addresses to hostnames. Since CommView has to contact your DNS servers to make a DNS query, it inevitably triggers the alarm. You can disable this feature (Settings => Options => Disable DNS resolving), but in this case, the Latest IP Connections tab will not be able to show you the hostnames. Second, you may have configured the program to check if updates or new versions are available. To do this, CommView has to connect to www.tamos.com. You can disable this feature (Settings => Options => Misc. => Enable automatic application updates). Third, when you purchase the product, you need to activate it. If you select online activation, CommView has to connect to www.tamos.com. You can avoid this by selecting manual activation. These are the only types of connections CommView can potentially make. There are no other hidden activities. We don't sell spyware.
