Constant connection to Google IPs?

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for taking the time to read this. I am new here, and this is my first post!

I have started using PlatformIO in Atom. It looks pretty awesome so far. I just have one question:

Q. Can anyone tell me why PlatformIO opens a constant connection to Google IPs, and also why it calls out to Google IPs every time I compile?

I’m sure this cannot be the first time this has been asked, I just haven’t been able to find discussion about it.

I am using platformio-ide 2.0.1 in Atom on Linux.

Thanks for your help.

Thank you so much. This has solved most of the issue. One thing remains…
Is there a way to stop the PlatformIO ‘startup’ page calling out to Google?

I have the startup page set to not ‘show at startup’, but when i do intentionally open it, it opens a connection to Google.

The connection is made from atom once the platformio home page is opened. Is this Atom’s issue or PlatformIO’s?

Thanks again, so much. I really appreciate your time.
