Hi team,

i have a question for you.

is defender for endpoint/business operates on the OS level when it comes to network and web protection ?

let's suppose i have the following scenario, i created network protection policies to block connections to whatsapp.
will this will keep working regardless of the network protection? will it block the access whether im connecting to my home wifi or work wifi?

thanks in advance

    Yes. The Network and Web protection should block those domains and IPs from any user, service, process, application, etc. no matter where the user is located.
