    Hi @Kleanthis

    Try enabling Alert mode, restart your PC and see if you get a pop-up to allow it.

    edit: otherwise, you may need to delete the iDrive rule leaving Alert mode on, and see if it re-freshes iDrive, like I just tested with Dropbox.

    I dont get any popups, plus it seems to prevent some connections on website. The main website loads but dashboards etc are connecting forevever,

    Edit: i did get 1 popup but that's all , the problems still remain.

    If you have Bitdefender Anti-Tracker enabled in the browser Extensions, try turning it off and refreshing the webpage. You can also go into Protection/Online threat prevention and disable some of those settings to see if the webpage will load properly.

    edit: you could also try adding the iDrive website to Online threat Exceptions.
