What servers does Pale Moon contact?

What servers does Pale Moon contact?

Pale Moon, by default, contacts a few different servers in addition to what you are surfing to.

Security-aware (or obsessively paranoid) people may have noticed this, so here is a roundup of what Pale Moon occasionally contacts in the background for its various purposes:
  • aus.palemoon.org to check for updates to the browser
  • blocklist.palemoon.org to check for updates to its extension/plugin/driver blocklist
  • addons.palemoon.org to check for updates to extensions
  • pmsync.palemoon.org if you use Pale Moon Sync with the default server (optional)
