Why is it important to ignore ping request? Symantec site says it's better to be invisible rather than your machine be known as present in the internet.
Why would it be better if they didn't know your IP address and provider? Unless you're involved in human trafficking, I don't see the point to block ignore ping requests and such.
Can anyone explain this?
