Blocked website count
I am currently trialing Freedome & noticed something a bit concerning.
As Freedome blocks a website, it is added the blocked site counter. Well, at one point the counter was 53 blocked websites. I happened to restore my computer to an older backup image from a few days ago (when the blocked website count was around 40). As soon as my computer powered back on after the restore, the blocked site count jumped from 40 to 53. I didn't visit any websites or even open my web browser. This leads me to believe that Freedome somehow keeps a record of the blocked site number, either through keycode or some unique device identifier. While I suppose this isn't an outright "security risk", it is a bit concerning since F-Secure states they do not log. Clearly there is some sort of record, since the old backup of my computer showed the higher block count even though, at the time of the backup, the count was only 40; clearly Freedome communicated with F-Secure's servers and got the updated count.
Any light shed on this would be appreciated.
