are there any hints that messengers can bypass AFWall+?
What happens to me:
Messengers like Whatsapp and Signal very often try to connect even if not started. So far perhaps not new.
But though I block them from time to time in AFWall+ if not in use I can see connect requests like „e1.whatsapp.net, e6.whatsapp.net etc., sometimes g.whatsapp.net or v.whatsapp.net“ or for Signal
„text secure-service.whispersystems.org“ in Adaway and even in Phiole.
Sometimes AFWall+ logs reports these apps have been blocked, but obviously they have passed and are displayed in Pihole anyway.
Similar issues happen when the messengers have been started but still are unchecked in AFWall (for testing purposes) so should be blocked further.
Both are in installed in personal and work profile (by Shelter) but are used out of the work profile only.
AFWall last version, OS Lineage 16.0.
Any ideas and recommendations?
Thanks in advance.
