Hello, I am a bit paranoid right now because I was doing some bug testing in Charles Proxy and accidentally turned off my wifi. Ofcourse, I turned it back on and saw some interesting packets get captured. Such as: emppwgqc , and llptprrvsvmi .The weird lettered names are always different though. There is also an ip within the summary of the packet which was registered to Search Guide Inc. When I went to the ip without the weird letterswith it, it took me to a page called dnsrsearch. These types of packets only show up when I connect to my wifi. Can anyone please help me out here to try to figure out if they are harmless connections or I should be worried.
