7.3.705 seems to check Watchtower related things even though it has been reset bc of HIBP security

edited September 2019 in Windows Beta


I noticed that it seems that Watchtower still updates even though it has been reset and disabled. I have not checked the traffic via Wireshark or smth else to see if it's actually going online, but the UI shows the Last Update when the App first is started (on a reboot for example). This also happens with 7.3.712

    Hi @Damnatus,

    Thanks for reporting this.

    We do download the offline Watchtower database file to your database daily on every app start, it's just not checked against your data.

    I'll file an improvement request to disable the daily downloads if the Check for Compromised Logins is disabled.

  • Ah okay. Thanks! Yeah, that would probably better indicate that the function is off.
