Incomplete McAfee Livesafe Firewall History?


I am using McAfee Lifesave under Windows 10. I recently checked my security history and found hundreds of blocked incoming connections. I figured out that this is normal. However, what I consider not normal is that the history of blocked incoming connections only reaches back about 3 weeks. All other events, such as regular virus scans, are recorded for the whole time I am owing  the computer (about 10 months). To me this means that a little more than 7 months, no suspicuous connections have been tried, which is diffcult to believe. In addition, the security report of McAfee shows thousands of "blocked suspicuous connections" over the entire period I am owning the computer (10 months).

Is this a bug in displaying the history?

Any heelp is deeply appreciated.

Hello @Berndt ,

We understand your concern here, you are trying view the whole list of blocked incoming connections in the last 10 months. We suggest you check the drop down in security history where you can select the duration of details that are visible in the page and on the bottom of the page there should be an option as next and previous which can e used to navigate through these information.

Re: Incomplete McAfee Livesafe Firewall History?

Hello Rajiv,

thank you very much for your quick reply! I used the drop down already before to see "all" events and I went through the history using "previous" and "next". As I said before, lots of block connections within the last three weeks and then, nothing, except for virus scans for the remaining 9 months.

In the interface of the German program version, there is a "security history", which shows the events I described before, and a "security report", which shows a bar diagram of all blocked suspicuous connections and there have been many of them, also in these nine months. Overall, way more blocked connections than I can see in the security history.

To me it looks like the security history is lacking lots of events.
