Why connects CCleaner with the internet?

Recommended Posts

I like CCleaner! Is a great Software.

One surprise me:

Why connects CCleaner with the internet (185.31.17.175)? Updates are disabled.

Old versions did not attempt to connect to the Internet (same settings). Why Version 5.0?

 

By the way, Speccy do the same. I dont use it.

 

Sorry for my bad English...  :rolleyes:

 

Thanks for your work.

As far as I understand it here is the reason.... 

 

 

Fastly is used for Piriform's webservices, this includes the licensing server. Each of the products make a call to the licensing server when starting up.

All versions (even free one) will call the license server. By doing so it checks for updates, validates licenses (for paid only)
