Display IP owner information (whois) in alert UI

1. What actually happened or you saw:

The firewall alert UI only displays the bare IP when an app tries to connect somewhere

2. What you wanted to happen or see:

See to whom (which company) the IP is registered to.

3. Why you think it is desirable:

So that we can take informed decisions when allowing or blocking an app.

4. Any other information:
It could also make a reverse DNS lookup of the IP to at least display a domain name.

Hi 2072,

I will forward your suggestion about displaying owner information in alert UI to our developers,they will discuss and decide about it.

It’s a great idea. Usually you need to search for an IP address in Google to find out something about it and it is quite bothersome.
