I was using TubeMate to download my first video with TubeMate, and I got banned from the Wi-Fi network I was using:

enter image description here

Quarantine Trigger

"ET P2P ThunderNetwork UDP Traffic"(2009099) UDP ->

According to https://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/, is an Amazon.com IP. I have no idea why some packet would go there.

I'm wondering why TubeMate caused it. Does Tubemate use some peer-to-peer network? If not, what could have caused this ban?

    Not sure by "peer-to-peer network", but based on the link, it's AWS (Amazon Web Service) Compute Engine. Not a user of TubeMate, but I'd assume just like most YouTube video downloader services, when you trigger the download, the app requests to the server on AWS to download and process the YouTube video first, then serve it back to the app from AWS for the device to download.
