Hello everyone,

I recently did a teamviewer session with a person. After that day, a teamviewer process would show up on my firewall as i started windows showing the name of a "macbook.XXX". I uninstalled Teamviewer but still this "MACBOOK" shows up in "windows host processes" when i start my computer. This person confirmed me he has a MacBook so I am pretty sure this is related to that teamviewer call. How do I fix this? And why does it make that connection when I start my laptop? Here is a screenshot of what happens.





The first in the list is the macbook i am referring to, the second in the list fully deleted is the name of my laptop.


what is happening?

thank you in advance for your help

I would suspect this shows as one of the exceptions added within the "Firewall" tab of Glasswire? If you never intend to use it again, you can click on the 'grey flame' icon on the left to block it, if it being there concerns you.
