The default browser makes several automatic connections on startup and I would like to use Netguard to block some of them to prevent that these sites/services get my ip address every time I open the browser.
I’m talking about the following:
ip address 22.214.171.124, said to have DuckDuckGo’s main site as the final URL (according to Webbkoll)
Can I safely block these connections or do they serve any important purpose?
I’m especially concerned about the connections to Github because it is owned by Microsoft. But maybe it is somehow necessary because Bromite (which was forked for /e/) uses Github for various things (e.g. to host its source code).
