Limit the pop ups for the VPN connection


There is an old and festering wound on The Total Security offer from BD which is the "Alert" about using a "vulnerable" network prompting the users to use the Bitdefender VPN, in principle I agree that it is good practice, but the execution here could be improved tenfold with some changes to the logic of when the prompt is shown and how it reacts to the user input.


The "show pop up" code should evaluate if this message has been shown for this SSID in the current user session of the OS, this way it could still nudge the less technically inclined into improving their privacy and security and not drive the more advanced users or people who have subscriptions to other VPN services up the wall like the current implementation does. 😉.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
