Redundant request for permission to access the internet

I regularly get a popup asking me to give permission (one time or always) to the same program (such as Microsoft Edge). I give "always" permission. Then a few days later I am asked again. How do I get the permission to stick?

Re: Redundant request for permission to access the internet

When I started MS Edge I got the popup asking me to give permission for Edge to access the internet. I selected "Always" as I always do. But I get asked again regularly.

I'm having having the same issue. No matter how many times I select allow always it asks for permission every time I open a browser. So far it happens with Chrome and Brave. I'd send you info about version and build, but apparently nobody at McAfee thought it valuable to be able to copy the text from the about screen.

Re: Redundant request for permission to access the internet

The problem isn't blocking. A child could do the blocking instructions. The problem is that it doesn't save the always setting and asks every time.

 

I solved the problem by getting rid of the software and getting something else. Thanks for your help.
