Hi,

I activated Google Safesearch under search settings in the google account options using MS Edge.

https://support.google.com/websearch/answer/510?p=ws_settings_safesearch&hl=en&visit_id=1-636122410526521031-2177650721&rd=1

Upon activating safesearch I clicked to lock it.. The lock process runs with a % completion as it updates..  In the middle of the locking process MB popped up blocked outgoing connections.  The IP resolves as GOOGLE owned during a whois.  The Domain name however looks odd.  Is this a False Positive?

google.co.bw  is also a registered GOOGLE domain.  I know MB blocks ICMP when pinging domains it has listed in its malicious repository as well.  If i ping www.google.co.bw it is not blocked, but times out during ping.

If I ping the just the domain name google.co.bw it is blocked by MB with an outgoing popup.
