I have seen reports that Sophos free antivirus has a 'phone-home' feature, and confirmed it via the Sophos website, but find no mention as to whether or not this 'feature' is in Sophos UTM free home edition. Anyone know for sure?

This pdf is a few years old  but might help. They should also disclose the information that's being transmitted/captured in there privacy policy.

I had forgotten about this post. Many thanks for the info! Glad I did not go with Sophos.
