Re: http://wpad/wpad.dat

I have the same problem on our windows 10 notebook. Starting around october this year I get several messages but only with http://wpad and that link is also not existing. I tried to find out what our taughter is doing when I get this message. Out daughter is not getting any messgae that something was blocked. On the device is also norton antivirus running besides norton family. So what needs to be done to get rid of this message? I don‘t want to add this link to the list of allowed links as there was a securitiy issue about wpad. Thanks

Hello Noli, NeverGiveUp2!

Update : We have fixed this issue and you should no longer see alerts and emails for http://wpad/wpad.dat

This was an internal call from browsers that was getting reported when Norton Family monitors child's PC.

Thanks,

Norton Family team!

Thanks a lot for fixing the issue that fast!!! Just a brief question: did u fix it for just us, or was that a systemwide fix. If it was just a fix for us, could you tell how it is done? Thanks again Noli
