Hi @Ytkaaa 

You can check the connections blocked  history under firewall activity. Make sure your network is trusted  with in McAfee UI. McAfee firewall will identify and restrict any anonymous connections which are not trusted.

Re: Over 1k suspicious connections

I also have on average 100 connections blocked per day. My network settings are for "home". Only trusted devices are in the network, smartphone, printer, other PCs. This has been happening in two different home networks. 

Some of the connections are from the internet (though my router's firewall setting is in "high"), some are from the local network (but when I look at the source address they don't match to any device on the network). 

How can I get more details on what is happening? Is this behavior normal?
