If you are using your work computer it's likely that you have a strong security setup. To access Brella's platform you need to configure your settings with a few steps.
If your company has enabled a system that prevents access to undesirable websites and protects it from external threats, known as 'Firewall,' it is causing trouble with the Brella (mobile or web app).

- Allow peer-to-peer traffic to go through your firewall and use your device outside the work network.
👉Note: Ask your IT team for more details about allowing Peer-to-Peer traffic.
