When I try to search online from the right click menu for anything, it says no results found no matter what I try. Is this a problem or will it only search certain items?
Hi, are you trying to search the online database of IP addresses by left- or right-clicking on the three dots to the right of any IP address. An example is shown in the screenshot below:

2407:7000:cdcd:52::1 is one that will return “No results found” in the online search at glasswire.com/host/2407:7000:cdcd:52::1.
As you can see GlassWire correctly identifies that IP address is in New Zealand. So it might be a bug that the database lookup shows nothing further. What do you think, @Ken_GlassWire? It shows up in other databases.

Additionally, here are some decent IP Address Info / Threat Intel Info sites:
No, it’s not local or private. It’s one of a pool of addresses used by my ISP.
I checked on MaxMind because I thought your were using one of their services. It does have a record which is accurate except for being out of date because the company was taken over.
