What is up with this "wssvpntap 090"

Jump to solution

Hi. Every time I turn on the VPN feature on my McAfee Live Safe I always see these words when I point my mouse cursor on the Wi-Fi icon:

"wssvpntap 0901"

Why is that? Anybody got an idea?

Hello @Going123 

McAfee VPN has a component included that helps VPN to function properly. Every VPN service in Windows installs Terminal Access Point (TAP) drivers, including McAfee VPN, Safe Connect. TAP drivers are needed to ensure the optimal functionality of the VPN service.
