    Anybody else notice that in Monterey when you start Parallels 17 Private Relay and Mail Privacy Protection are turned off?

    For Private Relay I actually get a popup notification saying Private Relay is turned off right when Parallels starts. Mail adds a banner to my emails saying "Your network preferences prevent content from loading privately."

    Even when I quit Parallels Private Relay and Mail Privacy Protection doesn't turn back on. In fact if I run Parallels then start Private Relay afterwards, it looks like it starts, but it doesn't work, giving you a false sense of security.

    Only a full reboot of Monterey allow Private Relay and Mail Privacy Protection to work again.

    Reposting this (original post was by someone else, hope you don't mind) because it never received a coherent response from Parallels staff. I'm experiencing the same problem. Is there a fix?
